apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName [ OK ]

Setting up apache2 (2.2.3-3.2ubuntu0.1) ...
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$
I fix the “Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
” warning message by add “ServerName <myservername>” to '/etc/apache2/apache2.conf'.
Another thing is apache use 127.0.1.1 instead of 127.0.0.1. In '/etc/hosts' file it has a line state that
127.0.1.1 <myservername>
I just change 127.0.1.1 to 127.0.0.1.
Now try to restart apache2 again. The warning message will be gone.
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo apache2 -k restart

Note: I just know that the address 127.0.0.1 to 127.255.255.254 are all loopback address.

Now for php
pnix@pnix-a7n:www$ sudo aptitude install php5

Time to test
Now I will create the most popular php testing script in the world, yes, phpinfo(). Use any text editor create a file called phptest.php that have one line '' then move it to web root directory[/var/www by default]. Open web browser and goto 'http://myservername/phptest.php'. If everything is ok you should see something like this.
