Description John Airey 2004-01-22 08:38:46 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install httpd rpm
2. /usr/bin/dbmmanage
Actual results:
-bash: /usr/bin/dbmmanage: No such file or directory

Expected results:
Usage: dbmmanage [enc] dbname command [username [pw [group[,group] 
    where enc is  -d for crypt encryption (default except on Win32, 
Netware)                  -m for MD5 encryption (default on Win32, 
                  -s for SHA1 encryption
                  -p for plaintext
    command is one of: add|adduser|check|delete|import|update|view
    pw of . for update command retains the old password
    pw of - (or blank) for update command prompts for the password
    groups or comment of . (or blank) for update command retains old 
    groups or comment of - for update command clears the existing 
    groups or comment of - for add and adduser commands is the empty 

Additional info:

I'm attaching a working dbmmanage file in the next section. This is 
the same as the dbmmanage.in file that is in the support directory of 
httpd-2.0.40.tar.gz in the source package, except that it specifies 
the exact directory of the perl binary, /usr/bin/perl.

dbmmanage perl script

This is the missing perl script.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-01-22 08:48:20 EST
Thanks for the report.  htdbm should be used instead of dbmmanage with
the 2.0-based packages: this is covered along with other migration
issues in /usr/share/doc/httpd-2.0.40/migration.html.
Comment 3 John Airey 2004-01-22 09:27:06 EST
Thanks for the rapid pointer, Joe. However, why do you still have the 
manual pages for dbmmanage, but no manual page for htdbm?

#rpm -ql httpd | grep dbmmanage
#man htdbm
No manual entry for htdbm

RHEL 3.0 doesn't appear to have this problem, or a man page for htdbm 
(I know man pages are awful, but the habit of 12 years is hard to 

Anyway, I shall try to use htdbm instead.
Comment 4 Joe Orton 2004-01-22 09:38:11 EST
The presence of dbmmanage.1 and lack of htdbm.1 are genuine bugs, yes,
