How to fix AH00557: httpd-prefork: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed

Last days i was confronted with issue above. i tried many solutions but it doesn’t really work , let me show you in this small tutorials how i have fixed it.

My running system is OpenSUSE but the solution should work for other Linux systems.

Now Please think that is related to your IP or hostname

the Solution is to find apache.conf or httpd.conf find the line with ServerName if the line Doesnt exit you may add it Manually

ServerName localhost # or put your real hostname instead )

save and exit

in my case

vi /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

Save and exit .

Restart apache

systemctl restart apache2

in case of Centos or other related Systems to

systemctld restart httpd

Check the Status Now

systemctl status httpd
systemctl status apache2

No erros displayed Now .
