I think I'd leave out the libudns0 package.

Default restarting apache2- error

When I restarted apache2 at end of howto this error was shown:

apache2 Syntax error in line196 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Invalid comand 'DnsblNameserver' perhaps misspelled or defined by
a module not included in the server configuration

these are the lines i had
DnsblUse On
DnsblServers httpbl.abuse.ch sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org

i had to take out the DnsblNameserver line so apache2would restart

Default seems to be working even without the line in last thread

I was in central london uk today went into a internet cafe and guess what
when I tried to access my site then;'


You don't have permission to access /mlist2.txt on this server because you are currently blacklisted by a DNSBL server at: sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org
Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8g mod_defensible/1.2

so it seems to be working
