avahi_entry_group invalid host name error

Postby learningcurve » Tue Jul 03, 2012 10:24 am

I installed Oracle Linux as a virtual local test server using VMWare Fusion on an OS Lion machine. I want to install OJS on this system to evaluate it. All seemed to be going well and I can see web pages I create using the localhost url, until I tried to install OJS. I got the installation screen to come up and filled it out. After clicking submit I got a blank screen. I am getting an error in the log file that I think is the issue. I am still very new to learning linux and so I am not sure what to do.

Here is the error from the log file:
[error] avahi_entry_group_add_service_strlst ("localhost") failed: Invalid host name

ServerName localhost

Here is what I have in my /etc/hosts file: localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6

Any help would be appreciated.
