Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 978200
httpd service not started in a web server install
Last modified: 2013-07-22 11:21:24 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):
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)"
Httpd service is not enabled by default
Httpd service should be enabled and webserver should be working
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
It's up to the httpd package whether httpd is enabled by default
"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.
