Description Arnaud WOROBEL 2009-02-27 11:52:55 EST
Description of problem:
Hello. Although a config file for httpd is provided with package, i think it is not correct to make a dependancy with httpd.
Indeed if users plan to use another web server like lighttpd, it is problematic for file's rights.

Currently the "solution" is to add lighttpd in apache group but it is not clean at all :/

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

How reproducible:
Simply do a yum install phpmyadmin to see the dependancies :)

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
phpmyadmin package installs httpd as a dependencie

Expected results:
Package phpmyadmin not dependent of httpd

"Requires: webserver" is the only requirement which can cause this. Yum
prefers httpd over lighttpd (both provide webserver), as "h" is before "l"
in the alphabet. Thus this not a bug of phpMyAdmin.
