The config file /etc/sysconfig/httpd is not included in httpd package
even /etc/init.d/httpd uses it. When looking for config files by rpm
-qc httpd it does not show this config file.
Because Apache show dates in auto-generated indexes in language given
by current locale when the server is started, this could be good to
mention this in an example of /etc/sysconfig/httpd like his:
$ cat /etc/sysconfig/httpd
# set your own environment for runnnig httpd daemon here
# uncomment next line to show dates in indexes in english
# instead of language given by system-wide locale
RHEL3 U3 hasn't the file too.
Thanks for the report.
With respect to the $LANG setting, FYI: httpd is started with LANG=C
by default for FC3 onwards. A sample /etc/sysconfig/httpd is also
now included as of httpd-2.0.50-6.
You would you like to see the example /etc/sysconfig/httpd included
for future RHEL3 updates?
This is fixed for RHEL4.
