Wrong Permissions on dav DAVLockDB Subdirectory
Last modified: 2008-01-24 10:29:16 EST
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):
Perhaps a permissions configuration in the spec file is the right fix
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?
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.
