Umair, please stop top-posting. It screws the readability of the

Something appears to be malfunctioning with your '?' on your keyboard.

This doesn't have anything to do with his issue. From his email,
nagios is working fine, it's just returning that his webserver is
throwing an error. It's the webserver error he's tracking down.

While you don't *need* to specify the port, the example config does
this and it's beneficial to do this if you have more than one website,
with apache listening on multiple ports. Otherwise you have the
potential for one ServerName definition to override another. With
apache, it's best to be as explicit as possible.
