A default install of ebox leaves an apache2 server running on port 80

Bug #225793 reported by Mathias Gug on 2008-05-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ebox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ebox

After installing ebox, the default apache2 website is served on port 80. That shouldn't be the case.

It may require some cooperation with the apache2 package.

I'm a bit confused as to what the problem is. Port 80 is the default port for apache (or any other web server).

Consider the following use case:

A sysadmin wants to use ebox to manage a mail server. Installing ebox
will leave the port 80 opened, which may not be what the sysadmin
wants on his mail server.

Fixing the issue requires some work on the apache2 package.
