Description Daniel McNamara 2007-12-31 23:20:27 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently the /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf file has an example reading:

# This configuration prevents mod_security at phpMyAdmin directories from
# filtering SQL etc.  This may break your mod_security implementation.
#
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#    <LocationMatch "/phpMyAdmin/(.+)">
#        SecFilterInheritance Off
#    </LocationMatch>
#</IfModule>

This example no longer works with the active  version of mod_security shipping
with F8. Minor modification to change line reading:

SecFilterInheritance Off

To:

SecRuleInheritance Off

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

phpMyAdmin-2.11.3-1.fc8

How reproducible:

Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uncomment mod_security example config in phpMyAdmin.conf file (using current
mod_security package - mod_security-2.1.3-1.fc8)
2. Run httpd -t to check syntax - be greeted by "Invalid command
'SecFilterInheritance', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included
in the server configuration"
3. Reliase that syntax changed in mod_security release and change entry to
SecRuleInheritance Off
  
Actual results:

Syntax incorrect resulting in failure to parse config

Expected results:

Syntax to be correct :)

Additional info:

Not a high priority bug. Obviously just a documentary entry overlooked when
mod_security changed
