You should make a .rpmsave file.
Which release were you upgrading from? Was the previous Apache installation
done via RPM?
I upgraded from RedHat 6.1, the apache rpm that was installed was
apache-1.3.9-8.i386.rpm (from updates).
I'm not sure how this could happen. The httpd.conf file is properly tagged as a
configuration file, which should cause RPM to copy Which version of RPM are you
using for the update?
The one from the pinstripe iso image: 4.0-0.59
Unable to duplicate until I hit a semi-live system. Work in progress.
This should really be set to an .rpmnew at a minimum. There are many httpd.conf files that include such things as frontpage and
mod_frontpage that the existing htttpd.conf must be preserved at all costs, with some kind of heads up to change over to
FHS standards. I am scheduling an upgrade the w/e on a secondary live system to see what happens.
