2011-06-14 12:17:34 Chip Rosenthal description Binary package hint: apache2 If $APACHE_LOG_DIR (as defined in /etc/apache2/envvars), server startup fails. This situation is extremely common on a host that has a root filesystem SSD. In this case, /var/log may be put on a ramdisk that is created on each boot. It would be helpful if the apache initscript createad the log directory if needed. SYSTEM: Ubuntu 11.04 (amd64) PACKAGE: apache2.2-common 2.2.17-1ubuntu1 Binary package hint: apache2 If $APACHE_LOG_DIR (as defined in /etc/apache2/envvars) does not exist, server startup fails. This would happen, for instance, if /var/log is on a ramdisk. That is something commonly done for systems that use an SSD drive. Putting logs on a ramdisk avoids wearing out the SSD flash memory. It would be helpful if the apache initscript createad its log subdirectory if needed. SYSTEM: Ubuntu 11.04 (amd64) PACKAGE: apache2.2-common 2.2.17-1ubuntu1
