Default domain name issues

Running a full production server with Debian stable only. apache2,
MySql, Mediawiki 1.18.1 many other apps that are all working well. The
issue is; I keep getting the domain name changed by some software to
'home'. My router is provided by Verizon Fios (Westel) and the router
provides primary DNS. protocol is DHCP addressing. It all works except
the apache2 sometime coughs up the message "cant determine FQDN
reverting to 127.0.1.1 which I do not like at all. Anyone else have this
issue (its recent) Even if I use the network manager and reset the
domain name. It soon gets changed, usually after I reboot to another OS
(Win7) Any ideas please.

Is your system configured for dhcp? If so then it is normal for your
domain name to be set by the dhcp server.

Check that router for the dns domain name configured there. Change it
to what you want.

However if actually have a server then you probably want to configure
a static address to ensure that the address always matches the domain
name and most importantly that it doesn't change. When you set a
static address you can also set your own domain name.

Here is a useful reference:

You can use "supersede domain-name "<domain>";" in
"/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf" to override the "home" value that you're
getting from your router's dhcp server.

What's your "127.0.1.1" line in "/etc/hosts"? Do you have a
"ServerName" apache2 stanza?
