Subject Re: other/2805: Apache won't start with syntactically incorrect <virtual hosts> in httpd.conf
Date Fri, 07 Aug 1998 17:37:08 GMT
Synopsis: Apache won't start with syntactically incorrect <virtual hosts> in httpd.conf

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc
State-Changed-When: Fri Aug  7 10:37:07 PDT 1998
State-Changed-Why:
It is a very bad thing to magically ignore settings that
are incorrect.  There is no way to tell if it is just
an unimportant vhost that can be ignored or if it is
a very important directive that will result in major
problems (eg. huge security hole) if not done properly.

You can't let just anyone edit your *.conf files anyway, so
I really don't see the point of ignoring errors.  If you
want, you can run "httpd -t" (or apachectl configtest) to
test config files before restarting.
