Description Emmanuel Thomé 2005-09-27 14:53:36 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:

When /etc/sysconfig/httpd is non-empty, apachectl sources it.

However, when it checks the validity of the config files using httpd -t, it does not use the OPTIONS variable. See the script, lines 103 and following:

case $ARGV in
    if $HTTPD -t >&/dev/null; then
       echo "apachectl: Configuration syntax error, will not run \"$ARGV\":"

I have a broken configuration in the default location, this results in the mystifying:

apachectl: Configuration syntax error, will not run "graceful":
Syntax OK

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have in /etc/sysconfig/httpd:
OPTIONS="-f /localdisk/httpd/conf/httpd.conf"
2. Suppose that the configuration in /etc/httpd is broken
3. Try ``apachectl graceful''

Additional info:

Obviously, line 105 of the script should be changed to:

if $HTTPD $OPTIONS -t >&/dev/null; then

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
