Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137815
redhat-config-httpd uses wrong values for KeepAlive
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:14:27 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-httpd
2. Enable, then disable the "Allow Persistent Connections" checkbox in the
"Performance Tuning" tab
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf contains the line "KeepAlive false", which httpd will
interpret as "On".
This bug is also present in the AS2.1 version of apacheconf.
