Bug Description


On ubuntu 16.04.2, with 2.4.18-2ubuntu3.2

Apache2 apache-htcache clean service init script define some config values:

# Default values. Edit /etc/default/apache-htcacheclean to change these

But the file /etc/default/apache-htcacheclean is not sourced in the file, so any change to the default configuration is not possible.

Adding ". /etc/default/apache-htcacheclean" just before allows to change the values.

Hi and thanks for the bug report.

Can you state more clearly what files you are editing? I am not sure I followed each step you took; for example, where did you add ". /etc/default/apache-htcacheclean" to?

If I look at /etc/cron.daily/apache2 it has that command already.

Sorry it was indeed not clear.

It is the file /etc/init.d/apache-htaccess that should (IMO) source the /etc/default/apache-htcacheclean file.
