Description A.J. Werkman 2013-06-26 02:01:10 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing the default package set Web-server, the httpd service is not enabled at first boot

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora, in the Software selection pane select Web-server package set
2. Reboot into the installed system
3. Login and type 'systemctl status httpd'.
4. Inspect the result "Loaded: loaoded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service; disabled)"

Actual results:
Httpd service is not enabled by default

Expected results:
Httpd service should be enabled and webserver should be working

Additional info:
This behaviour does not meet the final releases criterion 13 "All services in a defaul;t install must start properly"

After enabling httpd.service I hit another bug, filed as bug #976666
Comment 1 David Shea 2013-07-22 11:14:33 EDT
It's up to the httpd package whether httpd is enabled by default
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2013-07-22 11:21:24 EDT
"must start properly" does not mean "must start by default."  It is expected that the httpd daemon is not started by default.

I've always inclined towards thinking "disabled by default" is the correct setting for heavier-weight daemons like httpd, and don't see anything compelling here to suggest otherwise.
