Doc Text:
engine-setup now checks if apache httpd's ssl.conf file needs updates also on upgrades, prompts accordingly, and applies the updates as needed. Now, only parameters that actually require a change are changed - specifically, manual user changes to SSL certificates are not overridden. doc team: Please see bug 1558500 and comment 0 of current. Copied doc text from that bug and added a statement. Feel free to rewrite however you find best. Also, "parameters that actually require a change" are currently only a single one, "SSLProtocol". So if you want to be more specific than we tried to be in the past (and in the code), it's enough to: engine-setup now only updates SSLProtocol in apache httpd's ssl.conf file, if needed, and not other parameters.

Description Yedidyah Bar David 2018-05-09 10:14:02 UTC
Description of problem:

See bug 1558500.

This means also that a sysadmin changing ssl.conf after setup to use custom certs (probably signed by a 3rd party CA), gets these changes overwritten back to engine-setup's default, which is the internal CA.

This was first reported on the thread starting with:


(Current archive seems to not be up-to-date so does not include latest relevent emails).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and setup a 4.1 engine, as in bug 1558500.
2. Manually configure 3rd-party CA certs for apache httpd in ssl.conf
3. Upgrade to 4.2.3

Actual results:

Manual changes to SSLCertificateFile, SSLCertificateKeyFile or SSLCACertificateFile done in step (2.) are reverted

Expected results:

Only changes to SSLProtocol and CustomLog options are done, but not to the SSL*File options.

engine-setup asks for changes in ssl.conf and then changes only SSLProtocol, CustomLog. SSLCertificate settings are unchanged.
