Description Luboš Uhliarik 2019-07-17 12:58:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Instead of patching upstream config.layout, supply are own config.layout with proper paths + change paths for runtime dir and state dir. 

Previous values of runtime and state dir were:

runtimedir: /run/httpd
statedir: /var/lib/httpd

NEW values:

runtimedir: /etc/httpd/run
statedir: /etc/httpd/state

Also relative paths are correctly set. The whole change looks like:

diff of old/new /usr/include/httpd/ap_config_layout.h:
< #define DEFAULT_EXP_RUNTIMEDIR "/run/httpd"
< #define DEFAULT_REL_RUNTIMEDIR "/run/httpd"
> #define DEFAULT_EXP_RUNTIMEDIR "/etc/httpd/run"
< #define DEFAULT_EXP_STATEDIR "/var/lib/httpd"
< #define DEFAULT_REL_STATEDIR "/var/lib/httpd"
> #define DEFAULT_EXP_STATEDIR "/etc/httpd/state"
> #define DEFAULT_REL_STATEDIR "state"

ServerRoot is set to /etc/httpd, but for compatibility there are symlinks in /etc/httpd/{state,run}.

When ServerRoot is set by -d param when executing httpd, relative paths will be used e.g. $ServerRoot/state and $ServerRoot/run.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. TBD

Actual results:
- when -d param is used, absolute paths /var/lib/httpd and /run/httpd are used.

Expected results:
- when -d param is used, httpd should use $ServerRoot/state and $ServerRoot/run dirs.

Additional info:
I will supply reproducers or TC.
