Apache not autostarting
I just installed freebsd 5.3 and I installed apache, everything is working fine except that apaches isnt starting on boot, it has to be manually started after login.

Is there a way to correct this through apaches config files?
Or is there some statement I can put in maybe the rc.conf file to load apache at start??

Did you compile Apache from source, or are you using the built-in version that comes with FreeBSD?

If you're using the built-in version, check the relevant section of the handbook.

I compiled it from /usr/ports directory

OK, read the handbook then. I remember in 4.x when I did it that way there was an init script in /usr/local/etc/somethingorother. I don't know if 5.x has changed that.

probably you need to add apache_enable="YES" to your rc.conf. They changed all the local rc scripts to look to make sure they're enabled in rc.conf before they'll start up now.

But yes, read the handbook (which would have told you this) :p

Will that work with apache+mod_ssl installed from ports?

Atrocity 12-08-2004 02:58 PM

That should work on that, I dont see why not, since it doesnt specify even the version type 1 or 2, I dont see why it would matter if it was ssl. I think it would work fine
