Adding Apache to workstation install doesn't prompt to reboot for HTTP to show in Services
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
"HTTP Server" doesn't show up in Server Settings menu after installation of Apache
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only tried once - only installed Apache once - tried rebooting a couple times
but nothing changed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Apache from 8.0 CDs
2. Rebooted machine.
3. Server Settings menu doesn't have "HTTP Server" listed
4. Turned HTTPD on in Server Settings | Services
5. Server Settings menu still doesn't have "HTTP Server" listed
No "HTTP Server" available
An "HTTP Server" menu item to be available.
Apache is installed - httpd is installed under /etc and I was able to find the
httpd.conf file, for example.
After another reboot, I checked the boot logs. httpd startup was successful
(except that it can't find the server's fully qualified domain name, so it's
using 127.0.0.1... duh. Once I get the config tool working, I can update the
NOTABUG, you need to install redhat-config-httpd.
So if you include Apache during an initial install, the config dialog is
installed, but if you install it later, during an upgrade, the config dialog
isn't installed? This is _intended_ behavior? Why?
Because httpd doesn't require this tool and it is not part of the httpd package
but a separate configuration tool.
Closing this bug now.
Read ya, Phil
