Bug#155359: apache2-common: I don't like Servername=localhost in default site config
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I think the behavier of the 'old' apache paket was better were the apache did a
reserve lookup to find its hostname.
- From the the docu:
If no ServerName is specified, then the server attempts to deduce the hostname by performing a reverse lookup on the IP address. If no port is specified in the servername, then the server will use the port from the incoming request. For optimal reliability and predictability, you should specify an explicit hostname and port using the ServerName directive.
But I would suggest to use hostname -f, /etc/hostname or prompt the user for a
hostname, but Servername=localhost is not good. I already had trouble with it.
