Description Matthias Saou 2003-05-22 14:12:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030509

Description of problem:
I've built a thttpd rpm package, being very careful in not overlapping at all
with apache/httpd. For this, I've renamed the htpasswd binary and man page to
htpasswd.thttpd, and used /var/www/thttpd instead of directly /var/www as the
web root.
I intend to use both on the same server, thttpd on one IP address and httpd on
another... but I can't right now, just because of the "Conflicts: thttpd" that
seems to have been present in httpd and apache for a while now.

Would it be possible to remove it from future versions? I really think it's
irrelevant, and it's the only one listed (no caudium, boa or zeus). Right now it
won't solve my problem for existing Red Hat Linux releases, but in the long term
it would allow easy parallel installation to have thttpd serving static content
on a different port or IP address of the same server httpd/apache is running on.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --conflicts httpd

Actual Results:  thttpd

Expected Results:  (nothing...)

Sounds reasonable, I'll do it for the next build.
