Bug Description

In the ubuntu 14.04 manual there is a typo op page 194 the following section"
##################################################################
By default, the server writes the transfer log to the file /var/log/apache2/access.log . You can
change this on a per-site basis in your virtual host configuration files with the CustomLog directive,
or omit it to accept the default, specified in /etc/apache2/conf.d/other-vhosts-access-
log . You may also specify the file to which errors are logged, via the ErrorLog directive, whose
default is /var/log/apache2/error.log . These are kept separate from the transfer logs to aid
in troubleshooting problems with your Apache2 server. You may also specify the LogLevel (the
default value is "warn") and the LogFormat (see /etc/apache2/apache2.conf for the default
value).
##################################################################

The following directory might be wrong.
/etc/apache2/conf.d/other-vhosts-access-
log .
and should probably be:
/etc/apache2/conf-available/other-vhosts-access-log.conf

While we are at it, check for any other lingering etc/apache2/conf.d references. There is only one:

Page 224:
Another important configuration file is /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf, this file is symlinked to /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf, and is used to configure Apache2 to serve the phpMyAdmin

Doug, what should those file names on page 224 be changed to?

Ted, re file names on page 224: I don't know if the file names themselves are right or wrong. It is the directory itself that I know is wrong. /etc/apache2/conf.d no longer exists and now "conf-available" and "conf-enabled" are used.
