Binary package hint: apache2

When you configure apache to use a password-protected SSL key, you are prompted to provide that password when apache starts. The PID file has not been written at this point, so the init script won't work properly until the password is provided or apache is killed manually. In ubuntu 10.04, when apache is started by upstart, it cannot read input from the the console. You must login, kill it manually, then start apache. I was able to workaround the problem using by adding "stty sane" to /etc/init.d/apache2.

sed -e '/^ENV=/i stty sane' /etc/init.d/apache2|sudo tee /etc/init.d/apache2
