chroot testing of apache installation with multiple fqdn
I am testing out the installation of some software that involves specifying
hostname information for the install. I have set up a minimal chroot
environment and downloaded all of the debian packages and the other software
that is needed to build it.
I am using this on my laptop that is brought back and forth from home to work.
While at work, I have a static routable address assigned to me via dhcp. At
home, the laptop sits on my private lan with a 192.168.1.*. statically
One of the pieces of software I install is apache and a routeable
address/hostname is required as part of the install procedure for apache and
some of the other software.
If I do the install testing from home with my 192.168.1.* address in my chroot
environment, things work fine. However, if I am at work testing the install
done at home, then the apache web server won't be able to start. Likewise,
installs done at work and then tested at home have issues when starting
Is there a way to set up my chroot environment (or perhaps it is an apache
issue) that allows me the freedom to move the machine from one network to
another and just always go to the localhost instead of the actual machine
name/routeable address while still allow apache to start up regardless of
where the initial apache installation was done?
Thanks for any insight into this matter.
