Bug#208054: apache: no proper hostname

Package: apache
Severity: normal

On another machine (so, I've edited versions of packages inserted
by reportbug), I had installed apache.  Or, I partially installed
it.  I kept getting messages about invalid hostname and not wanting
to use  But, when I ran the hostname command, a properly
fabricated name was returned.  It must be because apache is looking
in /etc/hosts for a name for the eth0 interface (or rather, the IP
that the eth0 interface is attached to), because once I set this
to the name that hostname was returning, things started working.
Perhaps something in the install scripts, or the documentation should
mention this.  I did look for this, but couldn't find anything in
README files.
