Subject Re: [users@httpd] Problem with Apache2 after upgrade from Ubuntu14.04 to 16.04
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2017 15:32:00 GMT
Trust me. it’s the safest way to know you are starting off clean and have
no remnants that didn’t upgrade properly, there were a number of
deprecations from old to new Apache and they do not upgrade nicely.

And it really does not take that long, it should take you (depending on how
many sites) that entire fresh upgrade in under an hour.

For me when I had to do it after one upgrade from 14 > 16 I had 18 sites,
it took me barely an hour and everything was fresh and working properly,
then I moved to Nginx a few months later but that was for other reasons.

Tell me about it ….. the things we have to do !!! LOL

But just bite the bullet and start fresh, then you know you are fresh and
squeaky clean

Cheers
Mitch

Hi Mitchell

Many thanks for your response.  I'm coming to the same conclusion as you.
Best to cut my losses and rebuild Apache and PHP....but I HATE not knowing
what went wrong.  So...I'm going to spend some time getting to the bottom
of the problem...whilst being pragmatic and building my production server
with apache and php again to get back to 'real life'!!  Ugh the things we
have to do to survive in this game!! LOL.

My experience with upgrading from 14.04 to 16.04 is apache does not upgrade
well at all, had it happen on several servers already in the past.

I would suggest backup your entire etc/apache2 folder or rename it
/etc/apache_backup/

Then uninstall apache and purge it, uninstall PHP and purge it and then
reinstall both Apache and PHP

Then you will get a clean Apache with PHP 7, then move your sites back into
/etc/apache2/sites-available/ one at a time, enable them one at a time and
test as you go along.

Good luck

Hi

Newbie to the forum here so I hope I'm doing this right.  If not please
would someone guide me.  Thx in advance.

As the subject line says Apache2 is not working at all / satisfactorily
since the Ubuntu upgrade.  The details follow:

===========================

Here is my full post on askubuntu:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/904042/upgrade-to-16-04-lts-has-broken-apache

Currently the biggest help I could get would be if someone would decipher
what the following output means when I do :

systemctl status apache2.service

output:
===============

purvez@127:~$


The MAIN question is : Is Apache started and functioning or is it inactive
(dead)?

The last line of the output suggests that it is working but the 5th / 6th
line from the top suggests the opposite.

The errorlog is blank and the accesslog is blank as well since the day of
the upgrade.
===========================
Thanks in advance

Purvez
