Description Colin Walters 2004-10-19 19:19:47 EDT
Description of problem:

We really need a document describing how to use the Apache policy on
Fedora.  I'm in the process of writing one.
Comment 1 Colin Walters 2004-10-26 11:08:01 EDT
A rough draft is available here:

I'll update the .xml too.
Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-10-26 23:58:04 EDT
Ok, here is a version which I think is ready for review.

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-11-09 15:34:58 EST
Need to add a bit to the guide about common problem cases, such as trying to
serve web pages out of /opt/website (e.g. default_t)
Comment 5 Karsten Wade 2004-11-11 06:10:54 EST
The attachment following this covers a number of things.  Running a
diff against the previously attached version will reveal the extent of

* Changed ID attributes to (current) FDP standards.
* <sectn> --> <section>, as per FDP standards.
* New entities make version fun easier.
* Apache HTTP Server is the official name, and is how it is used in
the RHEL guides.
* Some writing adjustments to the first two sections.

More editing to come. :)

This does obsolete attachment 105822 [details], but does not include the Makefile.

patch for guide from Thomas Stichele
Comment 8 Colin Walters 2004-11-11 13:53:54 EST
Coo, thanks for reviewing Karsten.  Can we get this in the fedora CVS
so we can get these patches committed and have a centralized place to
work on it?
Comment 9 Karsten Wade 2004-11-11 14:22:47 EST
Good suggestion, forgot about that.


Not the greatest module name, but it'll do. :)

I presume you can get yourself access, if you don't already.  I'll let
you merge the patches.

completely edited document, ready for beta release, however see further comments

This is a big difference compared to the original.  One of the main things
changed was the case used throughout; as per RH docs tradition and upcoming
Fedora docs style guidelines, I tried to change wording to the active case,
focusing entirely on the reader (you).	Other changes should be obvious. 
Please review and let me know any questions.  When you (Colin) are happy, we
can post this to fedora.r.c/docs soonest; I have the capabilities and people

I will follow this with a diff against current CVS, based on my XML file,
mainly to make this bug report more useful.

Colin, do you want to handle merging the patches and your changes?  I did -not-
include Thomas Stichele's patch in my work.

Comment 12 Karsten Wade 2004-11-16 17:39:16 EST
Just to set the record straight, attachment #106849 [details] was a cvs diff -du
against 1.1, not current CVS (1.5).  FYI. :)
Comment 13 Colin Walters 2004-11-16 17:53:50 EST
Doing a merge now, about 40% done.

Ok, this patch has been applied.
Comment 15 Colin Walters 2004-11-17 14:42:24 EST
This guide is live now, so I'm turning this bug into a tracker for
bugs related to the guide.
Comment 16 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-05 15:33:55 EDT
Just a question from your friendly bugmaster -- is this bug still relevant or should it be closed as obsolete?
Comment 17 Colin Walters 2008-09-08 15:53:38 EDT
This document is not going to have bugs fixed by me at least - if someone wants to revisit it (which I think would be useful) we can reopen a new bug.
