Silly Apache warning

If the following happens to you:

apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

just issue a:

echo Servername `cat /etc/hostname` >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Tested on: Ubuntu server 9.04 32b / Ubuntu 12.04 64b

here’s 5 of them enjoying a quiet afternoon:
