Installation on Debian lenny fails due to new style of apache.conf
 
I recently updated apache2 to the version in "testing". The reason was that the version in Debian 4.0 "etch" did not support setting the charset of generated directory indexes. I continued to track apache2 in "testing" for some time. I was busy with other things and missed a couple of point releases of ISPConfig. Today I tried to upgrade from 2.2.18 to latest and greatest 2.2.21. The setup script bailed out with the error:
Code:

Checking the syntax of the httpd.conf...
httpd: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
ERROR: The syntax of your httpd.conf is not ok! Please correct the error. The installation routine stops here!

The cause of the problem is that user and group are pulled from environment.
Code:

# These need to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
User ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
Group ${APACHE_RUN_GROUP}

I am writing this for falko and till to be aware of the new style of Debian's apache.conf

I have changed them back to
Code:

User www-data
Group www-data

And now watching the setup script to do its job.

As of 2.2.23, the problem remains.

The problem was fixed in 2.2.23... :confused:

I will look into that. That may be my fault as I manually migrated ISPConfig installation from one server to another. This required a lot of manual labour including editing of /etc/passwd and other related files, manually copying the /home/admispcong and /root/ispconfig and dumping, editing (for new IPs) and restoring the ispconfig database.

Currently, this "installation" is at 2.2.21.

I will return to this problem on friday.

The problem likely was that the code below was never called.
It may be skipped when the setup detected that the current invocation was an upgrade, I did not dig enough into code paths. It probably should create the link in any scenario: on upgrade and initial install...

Code:

  echo
  echo "########## WEB SERVER ##########"
  echo
  which httpd > /dev/null
  if [ $? != 0 ]; then
    which apache > /dev/null
    if [ $? == 0 ]; then
      ln -s `which apache` /usr/bin/httpd
    fi
    which apache2 > /dev/null
    if [ $? == 0 ]; then
      ln -s `which apache2` /usr/bin/httpd
    fi
  fi

As of 2.2.25 it is still an issue...

httpd: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
 
I noticed this issue on a new install (ubuntu 8.04, ISPConfig-2.2.30) after changing site domains a few times: Vhost.
ls -l /etc/apache2/vhosts/
total 168
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1990 2009-05-11 21:47 Vhosts_ispconfig.conf

httpd -t
httpd: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
Not resolved after upgrade to ISPConfig-2.2.32. Content of Vhosts_ispconfig.conf

export APACHE_PID_FILE=/var/run/apache2.pid
Help please!

A few min after above, i deleted the ssl Vhosts then worked ok. But httpd -t still shows

httpd: bad user name ${APACHE_RUN_USER}


How do we install pre-existing SSL (key, crt, and ca_bundle/chain)?
