Apache - broken

Recommended Posts

Yup, default basic config of apache in Mandriva 2006 is broken, no running apache webserver.

 

Was the release rushed out to meet the 6 month schedule to have something as commonly used as apache broken?

 

[ aww, not only Mandriva, the security alterations in apache 2 have broken several commercial websites on upgrading, the error messages even state it's RHEL 4 based servers with the broken apache ]

 

it's more a case of implementing new security features without testing completely.

It's not broken on my release, and I'm using 2006.

 

However, I have found this using 2006 Free and Powerpack. Even though you choose install Apache during installation, it doesn't get installed. Why I don't know why.

 

All I did, was set up my easy-urpmi repositories, then I installed drakwizard, and then went into mcc, and you can set up the web server in there, or you can do it all manually if you prefer from cli, etc.

 

Then it all worked a treat. If you do have it installed, and having problems still, check that the service is there, and whether enabled with:

 

chkconfig --list

 

and see if apache, or httpd is on the list of services. Does it say ON against any of them. If not, then you can turn it on with:

 

chkconfig servicename on

 

replace servicename with apache or httpd depending on what it's called. Then you can attempt to start it using:

 

service servicename start

 

and replace servicename again with apache or httpd, depending on what it's called.

Im using Centos 4, which is a RHEL 4 clone, and I find the apache webserver works fine, even if I did the up2date and upgraded the Centos 4 to Centos 4.2... of course, after you do an OS upgrade, you have to check the apache config file, the file might have been replaced with the default httpd.conf .. and the working httpd.conf file might had been renamed as httpd.conf.rpmsave

Managed to install Apache on 9.2 and 10.1, but I cant locate it on the 2006 (free?), I assume I am missing something really obvious? Help please.

Make sure you have set up your urpmi sources, then you shall be able to install it. Seems it wasn't included on the media.

 

Once done, you can then just type:

 

urpmi apache

 

to install. Or you can do another way with:

 

urpmi drakwizard

 

then go into MCC (Configure Your Computer) and in one of the sections, there will be a wizard to installing Apache Web Server.
