Apache

[Fixed] Name or service not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of

I completed a new cPanel server setup and found that Apache service is not running.
On trying to restart, it failed and the Apache error logs showed following error

"[alert] (EAI 2)Name or service not known: mod_unique_id: unable to find IPv4 address of "server.example.com"
Configuration Failed"

I checked the Apache configuration  syntax file by using command

/etc/init.d/httpd configtest

which was ok.

On scratching head finally I checked the file "/etc/hosts"
and corrected the entries of the localhost and the server hostname which resolved the issue.

 If any feedback, queries are always welcome!
