Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2005:210 normal SHIPPED_LIVE redhat-config-httpd bug fix update 2005-05-19 04:00:00 UTC

Description David Lehman 2004-11-01 19:02:55 UTC
Description of problem:
Apache interprets anything other than "off" or "0" (case insensitive) as "On",
while apacheconf (and therefore r-c-httpd) sets it to either "true" or "false".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-httpd
2. Enable, then disable the "Allow Persistent Connections" checkbox in the
"Performance Tuning" tab
Actual results:
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf contains the line "KeepAlive false", which httpd will
interpret as "On".

Expected results:
"KeepAlive Off"

Additional info:
This bug is also present in the AS2.1 version of apacheconf.
