I did cd /etc/httpd/conf.d/; grep -i HostnameLookups *; .
Anything else I should look for?  There are no
.htaccess files. I do use reverse proxy to access large
files which at present are on the same box.  However, the
failure occurs on the home page which is a simple menu
that doesn't call the reverse proxy.  It does go through
a rather complex CGI written in C++.  However, for the
home page, nothing complex happens; it is just passed

Thanks for your ideas.
