Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.8 serves nothing or garbled directory lists or image file name
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 20:10:28 GMT
Further work on this problem: I removed the existing apache22 
installation which pkg_add had created (in /usr/pkg), set up pksrc, and 
built another apache 2.2.8 (httpd) from source. This one has mod_ssl in 
it, but it complains only slightly about missing ssl stuff.
Results are the same, kind of: web pages are still blank, but this time, 
the directory listing is in the standard character set, in HTML, but not 
interpreted as HTML, and the
content isn't the directory listing, either.

A short sample is below:
Parent Directory
<li> <dl> <dt><samp>x_create_server_config()</samp></dt>

<dd><samp>[SVR()]</samp></dd> </dl> </li> <li> <dl>

<dd><samp>[DIR()]</samp></dd> </dl> </li> <li> <dl>

<dt><samp>x_pre_config()</samp></dt> <dd><samp>[nowhere]</samp></dd>

</dl> </li> <li> <dl> <dt><samp>x_open_logs()</samp></dt>

<dd><samp>[nowhere]</samp></dd> </dl> </li> <li>
<dt><samp>x_post_config()</samp></dt> <dd><samp>[nowhere]</samp></dd>

</dl> </li> <li> <dl> <dt><samp>x_child_init(linden)</samp></dt>

<dd><samp>[nowhere]</samp></dd> </dl> </li> <li>
<dt><samp>x_quick_handler()</samp></dt> <dd><samp>[DIR()]</samp></dd>

</dl> </li>
That is actually the way it gets displayed in the browser, too.
I made an HTML page of it and looked at it: looks like a listing of the 
modules (?) in the httpd executable itself (!)

Yes, I do have DocumentRoot set to what I want it to be.
As far as the error_log is concerned, everything is just fine: status 200.
I've got all the extra files commented out for now, including 
httpd-ssl.conf, but there is a small error message in the log upon startup:
[Wed May 14 12:51:46 2008] [warn] Init: Session Cache is not configured 
[hint: SSLSessionCache]

So now: any suggestions?
