I guess I should have been a little more clear, I added the above line
to /etc/hosts. I didn't remove the localhost line (I'm not a complete
noob ;). This is what I had/have:
[root at replay root]# cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
127.0.0.1 replay.cabuki.com replay
I added the replay line because I have a wildard entry on my DNS
server that points all subdomains at the same IP unless I explicitly
set up a CNAME or A record for it. The default address for cabuki.com
is in a different network (and a different country), so I added the
replay line so it would point to the correct place.

OK. I didn't touch the DB.
