apache returns: invalid server name

Asked by skiptim on 2010-02-15

when I try to access apache2 I get a - "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost"
so I have tried to see if apache is running and this is what I get:-
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
[sudo] password for tim:
 * Restarting web server apache2 Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn.save:
Invalid command 'SeverName', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
Has any one got any ideas, please?
NB. I am a beginner on this system, well pretty much a beginner so if you could couch a reply in simple that would really help.

'SeverName' DOES seem to be a misspelled version of 'ServerName'...
I'll need to check my server (later today) to see if it's normal.

So now I have uninstalled the LAMP 3 times and re-installed it and still the same messages. Any thoughts please?
