    Default Apache LogFormat error / module issues

    Hello!,


    Trying to configure apache on my opensuse11 box here and have run into some issues.

    I previously tried installing apache2/php/mysql from source and had some issues getting getting php to compile correclty with all the options I wanted. So, I deleted my installs of apache php mysql and went back and did a fresh install with yast to see how well that would work.

    The install goes ok but when trying to save a config in yast-http I get a 'cannot adjust apache2 service' error. Trying from the console I get:

    Code:
    apache2ctl start
    Syntax error on line 11 of /etc/apache2/mod_log_config.conf:
    Invalid command 'LogFormat', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the #server configuration
    Reading through posts here I have gone through my /etc/sysconfig/apache2 to track down errors in the APACHE_MODULES value and subsequently /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf and /etc/apache2/mod/mod_log_format.conf

    Everything 'looks fine' to me and I have tried a few methods of reinstalling apache itself. Via yast, via zyyper as well as manually removing anything left behind by those methods.

    Any ideas on this?

    Thanks!

    looking at this further it seems like part of the issue i'm having is that the some of the modules listed in the APACHE_MODULES var in /etc/sysconfig/apache2 are not generating LoadModule commands in /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodules.conf

    looks like some of module files I need in /usr/var/apache2-worker/ are missing? any idea why mod_log_config.so (for example) would not have been installed by yast?

    The module is in /usr/lib/apache2/mod_log_config.so (lib64 for 64 bit systems). log_config is part of the standard modules that come with apache.

    yeah, that's where the links in /usr/lib/apache-prefork point to but it doesn't seem to be there.

    Code:
    fileserver:/usr/lib/apache2 # ls -la

    Maybe your apache2 RPM didn't correctly install? What does

    rpm -V apache2

    output?

    Also bear in mind that some modules are incompatible with worker, not sure about log_config though. Is there a reason you are using worker instead of the more common prefork?

    I'm away from the box until tomorrow, I'll post that output when I get to it. I have looked at it when I was working through another thread and it it seemed consistent with what other people had, but I'll get it tomorrow.

    After that post I let yast get mod_php5 and that required prefork so it switched everything over to /usr/lib/apache2-prefork/ which has the same broken links pointing to /usr/lib/.

    Anyway, thanks for looking, I'll try another reinstall on apache tomorrow and see what happens.
    What could keep yast from getting those modules?

    Error during install maybe?

    ok, the output of that was

    rpm -V apache2
    S.5....T c /etc/apache2/default-server.conf
    .......T c /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
    S.5....T c /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/apache2

    YaY! Finally started.

    Changed my repositories settings and did a full install from yast again and it finally downloaded all the correct modules files. Thanks for the help!
