apache2 replaces apache1 in slack current


I noticed in the latest changelog that httpd-2.2.4 replaced apache-1.3.37 in slack current on 5/19/07? I have been checking out the apache2 ProxyPreserveHost command for my virtual hosts on a secondary internal server. I'm ready to make the jump. Anybody else?

Hehe. I already wondered if this one would stay in slack forever due to its 1337n355

Lightbulb /etc/logrotate.d/httpd

Be aware of the /etc/logrotate.d/httpd file:
Code:
/var/log/httpd/* {
  rotate 10
  size=5M
  compress
  delaycompress
  sharedscripts
  postrotate
    /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd restart
  endscript
}
The filter /var/log/httpd/* will end up in a recursion. This filter matches not only the logfiles like *_log, it matches the shifted archives too. After some logrotate -f you will see:

Funny, isn't it? My patch:
Code:
/var/log/httpd/*_log {
  rotate 10
  size=5M
  compress
  delaycompress
  sharedscripts
  postrotate
    /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd restart
  endscript
}
Important: var/log/httpd/*_log or another suffix - depends on what you have chosen as log filenames.

Another solution for this is to add the 'olddir' parameter to the logrotate file (specify a directory relative to /var/log/httpd to place the rotated logs in and create the directory manually).
