First - there's no apache when I'm developing.

Third - moving an image to a new box where the hostname has been set  
prevents access to the web tools to change the host name.

I don't mind if it is syntactically wrong if it works right.  I don't  
much like it if it is syntactically right but doesn't work at all.
