Bug Description

Binary package hint: apache2

With vanilla feisty apache2 package (after commenting out broken line 189, https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/apache2/+bug/119509 ), when apache2 is running, the errors:
[<timestamp>] [error] cgid daemon process died, restarting
[<timestamp>] [error] (2)No such file or directory: Couldn't bind unix domain socket /var/run/apache2/cgisock.<five digit number, varies>

show up in /var/log/apache2/error.log three times per second. When the directory /var/run/apache2/ is created, the cgisock file is created in that directory almost immediately.

If you need a fix for the bug in previous versions of Ubuntu, please follow the instructions for "How to request new packages" at [WWW] https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports#request-new-packages .

I need apt-get upgrade apache2 from backports?

Nominated for a Feisty update. Backports would not be an appropriate way to resolve this for Feisty.

I suspect, but have not tested, that if you have this problem manually creating /var/run/apache2 and giving it appropriate permissions/ownership would solve the problem.

This is definitely a SRU candidate. I'll come up with a fixed package.

Hang on. I just checked my feisty installation and it definitely *does*
create /var/run/apache2. Did you not allow dpkg to update your
/etc/init.d/apache2 ?
