Description Andrea V. 2006-05-29 12:50:46 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #180056 +++

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922
Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
system-config-httpd needs to be updated for compatibility with Apache 2.2 for
FC5 -- many of the LoadModules and includes in the generated httpd.conf file
fail when used with httpd-2.2.0-5.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start httpd-config-httpd on FC5T2 or later Rawhide.
2. Enter a server name and click OK (and OK on subsequent dialogs).
3. Restart Apache.

Actual Results:  Apache does not start due to errors in the configuration file.

Expected Results:  Apache should have started with the specified configuration.

Additional info:

Tested on FC5T2 and Rawhide 2006-02-04 and compared with FC4 and with the
httpd.conf supplied in the httpd- package. Sample error message when
starting Apache with a configuration file generaated by system-config-httpd:

httpd: Syntax error on line 170 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load
/etc/httpd/modules/mod_access.so into server: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_access.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Created an attachment (id=124857)
Patch for /usr/share/system-config-httpd/httpd.conf.xsl

This patch updates the LoadModule directives in httpd.conf.xsl for
compatability with Apache 2.2 (FC5)

Read ya, Phil

I ran patch /usr/share/system-config-httpd/httpd.conf.xsl attachment.cgi and I 
still receive the same error.

I figured out the problem: SELinux.  I had to turn on "Allow HTTPD scripts and 
modules to connect to the network."  Is this a kludge or would this be 

-- Additional comment from pknirsch@redhat.com on 2006-04-03 11:23 EST --
Ah, thats actually expected behaviour. By default with SELinux enabled your
system won't allow CGI scripts to be executed as they might pose a security risk.

So this is the correct way to "fix" this.

Read ya, Phil

Ok, I did search for any open bugs on s-c-httpd before adding #188416, but
obviously this one had been closed, why was it closed as NOTABUG though?

How exactly do I run this patch?

-- Additional comment from chris@tylers.info on 2006-04-11 09:24 EST --
Apply it with:

cd /usr/share/system-config-httpd
patch </wherever/system-config-httpd.patch

-- Additional comment from drpepperguy@gmail.com on 2006-04-16 02:53 EST --
I am new to linux and do not know how to apply this patch. I have logged into 
the gui, copied the text from the attachment for the patch and saved it as 
system-config-httpd.patch in the directory /usr/share/system-config-httpd. 

Then I followed the directions above from a shell...
"cd /usr/share/system-config-httpd
patch /usr/share/system-config-httpd/system-config-httpd.patch"
The prompt just sits there and flashes.

I re-read the instructions and then at the shell I 
typed "patch /usr/share/system-config-httpd system-config-httpd.patch" and 
this time it gave me the message "Patch unexpectedly ended in the middle of 
the patch line: *** Only garbage was found in the patch input."

I am not sure I am saving the patch like I need to. I am just copying it and 
saving it as the filename.patch. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Any help 
would really be appreciated. Thank you. 

Kind regards,

-- Additional comment from carlosalfaro@yahoo.com on 2006-04-25 14:05 EST --
I followed the instructions here and this is the output I get when patching the
patch system-config-httpd system-config-httpd.patch
patching file system-config-httpd
Hunk #1 FAILED at 157.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 208.
2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file system-config-httpd.rej
[root@newyork2 system-config-httpd]#

any ideas how to fix this?
Thank in advanced

-- Additional comment from djmcke@yahoo.com on 2006-04-26 07:30 EST --
Could somebody please post the entire
/usr/share/system-config-httpd/httpd.conf.xsl file.

-- Additional comment from vezza@inwind.it on 2006-05-28 14:23 EST --
It appears to me that this bug is still present into the
system-config-httpd.noarch 5:1.3.3-1.1 for distributed from the core repository
of Fedora core 5. I tried the patch and it works but I added this comment in
order to warn developers about that (I don't know if I did the right thing but
hope it is useful to someone).

Thanks... (Sorry if there is something wrong but I'm also new to linux)


Comment 1 Sander Hoentjen 2006-06-18 11:02:28 UTC
Any word on when the update will happen? This is a high severity bug (The
package is just useless the way it is now) with a trivial fix. Surely it doesn't
need to take over 4 months.
