Description Patrick Sefton 2012-01-04 07:42:56 UTC
Description of problem:
httpd fails to start using systemd / systemctl (after upgrade from F14 to F15) but starting httpd manually works

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.2.21-1.fc15 (x86_64)
systemd-26-13.fc15 (x86_64)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # systemctl start httpd.service
Actual results:
# systemctl start httpd.service
Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

Expected results:
httpd starts normally (asks for SSL passphrase, as expected)

Additional info:
# httpd -k start

# httpd

# systemctl status httpd.service
httpd.service - LSB: start and stop Apache HTTP Server
	  Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd)
	  Active: failed since Wed, 04 Jan 2012 17:32:32 +1000; 2min 12s ago
	 Process: 2825 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/httpd.service

/var/log/httpd/error_log for fail case:
[Wed Jan 04 17:38:14 2012] [notice] SELinux policy enabled; httpd running as context system_u:system_r:httpd_t:s0

[Wed Jan 04 17:38:14 2012] [notice] SSL FIPS mode disabled

/var/log/httpd/error_log for success case (manual start):

[Wed Jan 04 17:39:50 2012] [notice] Digest: done

Comment 1 Patrick Sefton 2012-01-04 11:49:39 UTC
SSLPassPhraseDialog exec:/usr/local/bin/httpd-ask-password
to /etc/httpd/ssl.conf

and then following a number of SELinux alert suggestions / solutions to correct permissions for systemd-ask-password and systemd-tty-ask-password-agent

fixed this for me.
