Fixed Error Reloading Apache2 Service - Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name using 127.0.1.1
This error occurred after I configured the first virtual host, enabled the site1.conf file from /sites-available/ directory over to the /sites-enabled/ directory using the a2ensite command, and then I tried to reload Apache2 using
sudo systemctl reload apache2
and received errors. I tried to restart apache2 using
sudo systemctl1 restart apache2
and I received an error.
I stopped the apache2 service, then tried to start apache2 using
sudo systemctl stop apache2 sudo systemctl start apache2
I received this error:
"AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1. Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message."
When I checked the status of apache2 service I received a similar error.
sudo systemctl status apache2
Here is one likely fix for these errors
cd /etc/apache2/ sudo vim apache2.conf
At the very bottom of the conf file, insert
Press Esc, Type :wq Enter in order to save and quit vim.
Now, restart Apache2
sudo systemctl restart apache2
