Description Richi Plana 2007-10-18 13:31:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The httpd daemon's DAV module cannot initialize its lock database because the
group permissions on the subdirectory (/var/lib/dav/) restricts it from doing
so. In a default install, the permissions are as follows:

drwx------  2 root apache /var/lib/dav/

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

Additional info:

Perhaps a permissions configuration in the spec file is the right fix
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-10-22 06:11:13 EDT
It's specified as "apache.apache" in the spec file, so it shouldn't be owned by
root.  Was this an upgrade, fresh install, anaconda, yum? Any errors in
/root/install.log or /root/upgrade.log?
Comment 2 Richi Plana 2007-10-22 10:01:42 EDT
The Fedora 7 system referred to was a fresh install with updates applied
throughout the months. So it's hard to say what happened to the ownership and
the permissions. I've not audit logs that can tell for sure. I only found out
about it since I activated mod_dav for the first time when I reported the bug.

I guess it's NOTABUG with this version.

Closing out lacking a repro case.  Perhaps some transient "adduser" failure.
