None of those url's are hosted on my server and I don't know any of those ip addresses...

Thanks in advance for any answers.

Lame server is saying that your server is not authoritive for that domain, which is correct. Perhaps those domains are pointing at your IP's?

4ccc.net:
ns1.covad.net. [216.251.45.139] [TTL=172800] [US]
ns2.covad.net. [64.29.158.54] [TTL=172800] [US]

No those ip's aren't on my machine, neither are the domains... i get constant warnings of these resolvings... what can I do? Most of the time apache fails when this occurs.

In this case 'lame server resolving 4ccc.net' means that dns servers that are pointed in NS of .net (whicha are ns1.covad.net. or ns2) are not able to resolve domain - both respond with SERVFAIL.

Also I don't think that it has something in common with apache fails. It's possible if you have tourned on dns resolving in apache logs.

Talking Dont panic!

The Covad namesevers are supposed to be authoritative for "4ccc.net" but they are not. When your server tries to resolve host names in that domain, the Covad servers do not respond as expected, and you get the "lame server" message in your log.

Nothing to worry about, more an annoyance than anything else.

You can disable the logging of lame server messages, but unless you are familiar with named.conf, just forget it. You can do damage if you're not careful.

Ok thanks for the answers the reason for apache failing must be searched elsewhere I guess... first find Watson in some bar and the search for this mistery can begin
