Description of problem:
I uncommented the line that says 'NameVirtualHost *:80' at the end of
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, and now the children of httpd segfault on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uncomment the NameVirtualHost *:80 line in httpd.conf
2. Load any page
Actual Results: 3. Segfault
Expected Results: I expected no change in behaviour.
This is a fresh install of Taroon.
I had actually created a virtual server, and it segfaulted too. I
isolated the problem to this particular line by going back to pristine
config files and uncommenting one line at a time. Good thing this
happened with the first line, or it might have gotten tedious.
I'm thinking it might be related to mod_ssl.
Doing 'cd /etc/httpd/conf.d; rpm -qf * | sort -u' gives:
*** Bug 104257 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Thanks for the report.
A correct configuration must define at least one VirtualHost for the
:80 port, i.e.
the segmentation fault occurs if *no* VirtualHosts are configured for
