[suse-security] Apache update problem
Date: Tue Sep 13 2005 - 16:52:01 CDT
Just done an online update.
For some unknown reason, after doing an online update, the Apache2 update
overwrites my /etc/sysconfig/apache2 configuration file.
Apache2 then refuses to start with the following error message:
Starting httpd2 (prefork) Syntax error on line 24 of
/etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/global.conf: CustomLog takes two or three
arguments, a file name, a custom log format string or format name, and
an optional "env=" clause (see docs)
The command line was:
/usr/sbin/httpd2-prefork -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf failed
Failed services in runlevel 3: apache2
To correct the problem, I have to overwrite the apache2 config file the
update has kindly installed for me, with a backup copy, and then start
This is odd behaviour. Should a security update be allowed to overwite
config files that have been manually altered by the sys admin?
Has anyone else noticed this behaviour?
This is what I have defined for Apache2 logs:
