apachectl script not included in binary dist.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:02 EDT
Just a simple missing of the apachectl script from the spec file. I haven't
built my own version yet that includes this binary, but likely will as the
new version of apache is recently released.
Please include this very useful script in the distribution - thanks.
Usingthe default configuration file setup, the apachectl script can't actually
start the server properly.
I realize that the stock apachectl won't start the server or do many of its
normal functions unmodified.
It would probably be better to modify the apachectl and link to it in
/etc/rc.d/init.d rather than not have it. Some of the various things like
'apachectl configtest' are just that much harder to do by hand now that all the
"-D HAVE_*" definitions are needed to know if the config file is correct.
If you wish, I can merge the updated /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd and apachectl
scripts and send in a diff.
