Subject [users@httpd] Sudden need of a case change (MIMEMagicFile)
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2006 00:40:30 GMT
Hello, I had a strange problem;

 one day my web server crashed, and it took some time to find out the problem. 
It was related to mod_mime_magic module. In the httpd.conf, there were a line: 
MIMEMagicFile /etc/httpd/conf/magic . This line was preventing me from starting 
the http service. and its status was :  httpd stopped but subsys locked!

When I changed that line to "MimeMagicFile /etc/httpd/conf/magic " 
(MIME --> Mime) I could be able to start the web service, and it is now 
working fine. Interestingly, until that time, it was working as MIMEMagicFile ...

Does anybody know, what could have caused this problem? 

I ask this, beacuse with this problem my mail list system, 
mailman, has also been affected badly, and it now cannot track cookie information (I assume
and it repeatedly falls back to the login screen.

Best regards,
Onur Ergin.
