Description Gerald Teschl 2000-10-20 11:42:39 UTC
I noted that after an install of 7.0, there is no group apache (48).
The rpm %post script should make sure that this group exists.

Were there any errors in the installation log file in /tmp (or printed to the
console if you installed after installation)?  The %post already invokes useradd
to create the apache user (and group, since it doesn't use useradd's -n flag) at
the same time.

Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2000-12-19 18:38:29 UTC
It's not an installation problem. The group seems to "disappear" from time to
on my system. Haven't figured out why yet.

I think this was my mistake. Closing the bug.
