Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47219] New: Apachectl configtest doesn't check if log directories are created and/or writeable
Date Tue, 19 May 2009 13:08:18 GMT
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47219

           Summary: Apachectl configtest doesn't check if log directories
                    are created and/or writeable
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: ErrorMessage
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache-bugreport@elfstone.nl


When the log directory is not created/writable, apache2 fails to start or
restart. Running "apachectl configtest" gives "Syntax OK", so it doesn't report
this as an error.

According to the documentation about apachectl configtest: "This test does not
catch all errors.".

While this is true, I think this one should be caught because it is (I think)
simple to check and prevent. Also, "apachectl configtest" checks if
DocumentRoot is created and writable, so it is inconsistent (and not expected)
if it checks one path, but not the other.

This 'bug' (I prefer 'missing feature'), would not be so bad if 'apachectl
restart' would report that it stops working because of missing/unwritable log
directories (but this is another matter).
