Description Onur Gungor 2004-07-16 10:29:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
When I try to start the httpd daemon with the predefined settings, it
'seems' to work, but if I check it with /etc/init.d/httpd status it
gives me this message: (in fact its Turkish version but I guessed the
English one)

httpd is dead but subsys is locked

I have found a workaround for this:

I comment out the 423, 425 and 426th lines in
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file, the ones about mod_mime_magic.c .

423: <IfModule mod_mime_magic.c>
424: #   MIMEMagicFile /usr/share/magic.mime
425:    MIMEMagicFile conf/magic
426: </IfModule>

I didn't further investigate whether this is with the inexistence of
mod_mime_magic or some other configuration fallacy.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure that httpd package is installed. (from fc2 rpms)
2. try to start the daemon.
3. check that it is not responding.

Actual Results:  When I check the status of the daemon what I get is:
httpd is dead but subsys is locked

Expected Results:  httpd running pids or something.

Are there error messages in /var/log/httpd/error_log?

Comment 2 Onur Gungor 2004-07-16 10:55:28 UTC
Nothing unusual. Here are the excerpts when I start the daemon:

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2004-07-16 11:05:43 UTC
Ah, this is the problem due to the Turkish locale causing strcasecmp()
to not match directive names case-insensitively.

echo LANG=en_US >> /etc/sysconfig/httpd

is a workaround.

Comment 4 Joe Orton 2004-07-16 11:08:30 UTC
Adding reference to upstream bug.

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2004-08-24 07:50:03 UTC
Since the fix for this issue is a behaviour change, and has a simple
workaround, integration will be delayed until the next release.

Thanks for the report.
