Default istalled fine (Fedora core 4) but HTTPD problem

Hi all,

After reading and doing all the Perfect Setup Fedora Core 4, and the ISPConfig Installation Instructions I can now login to the ISPConfig interface on port 81.

However.. I can not get Apache (httpd) to start anymore..
Looking at the '/var/log/httpd/error.log' it is showing me this:
(13)Permission denied: httpd: could not open error log file /home/www/web1/log/error.log.
Unable to open logs


The directory is there, but the error.log file not!

Anyone here who might know what is set wrong?

Thank you...

Strange... I suggest that you create the error log manually (and check later for other web sites if the error still occurs...):

Code:
touch /home/www/web1/log/error.log
chmod 644 /home/www/web1/log/error.log
Then chown it:
Code:
chown web1_<admin>:web1 /home/www/web1/log/error.log
and restart Apache afterwards.

Have you enabled the Fedora Security extensions or set an higher security level sa suggested in the howto? For me it looks like SE Linux or a similar extension is enabled.

till, could you please quote/show the part about this in the howto?

I've done a clean install of Fedora and ISPConfig, but I'm still having problems starting httpd (service httpd start).. It's giving me a 'failed'

Problem now is (taken from /var/log/httpd/error_log)
Quote:
unable to start piped log program '/root/ispconfig/cronolog --symlink=/var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log /var/log/httpd/ispconfig_access_log_%Y_%m_%d' : Permission denied
Unable to open logs
The only info I can find about this is: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201

you where correct the problem was SE linux

i now have disabled the SELinux httpd deamon.

don know if that is a proper or correct way to do.
<SElinux is somehow new to me>

so im open for any ideas to work around this problem and still enable the selinux httpd deamon.
I'm new to SELinux... How do I disabled it?

Thank you for any help!
