HowTo access installed site via hostname not IP
I use Ubuntu 12.10.
I read a lot of information and as result I have become more confused.
I have installed Apache, MySQL, PHP and phpMyAdmin successfully. And I can access my site from local network by 192.168.190.17.
How can I do access via alias as "buro" or smth like it from LAN.
Should I configured bind9 or just correct cinfigure Virtual Hosts?
I tried to edit /etc/hosts, added virtual host
127.0.0.1 localhost buro
hosts: files dns
protocols: db files
services: db files
ethers: db files
rpc: db files

From another PC cannot ping by hostname.
/etc/apache2/apache2.conf - This config I left without any change.
I would add this line to the LAN PC's hosts file,
(assuming it's Windows PC's - C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts):
Then the LAN PCs know where to look for buro.
You could also change their primary DNS to 192.168.190.17,
but then your server will be asked for all domains requested from LAN PC's
which would be rejected, and then the LAN PC's will try with their secondary DNS.
If you have a domain with DNS (or too many LAN PC's to edit) you could also point
buro.yourdomain.com to 192.168.190.17 from your domain provider's DNS control panel.
Some gateways/routers also have the ability to resolve local domains.
This is only about resolving. It's not about configuring the server alias.
