Default configuration file Apache 2.2 not Apache 2.4

munin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 13.10 ships with Apache 2.4, while Munin's default apache.conf file is written for Apache 2.2.
Therefore, the following changes should be made to /etc/munin/apache.conf for the
    - Order allow,deny
    - Allow from localhost ::1
    + Require host localhost
    + Require ip ::1
or something like that ...

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 13.10
Release: 13.10

$ apt-cache show munin
Version: 2.0.17-2ubuntu1

3) What you expected to happen
munin to work out-of-the box

4) What happened instead
got an access denied message when accessing

Changed in munin (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low

The supplied patch will fix the issue with munin not working out of the box, as the config file /etc/munin/apache.conf uses the old Apache 2.2 config scheme, while Ubuntu 13.10 uses Apache 2.4.

In order to get this to work from any host (it's a secure network), I had to add the following:

 Order allow,deny
 Allow from all
 Require all granted

Previously 'Allow from all' was sufficient.

Perhaps I'm not up to speed with Apache 2.4, but just wanted ot put it out there to save other people from wasting the time I did on this.

I believe Ubuntu 14.04 now ships with Apache 2.4 by default, but Munin has not been updated to the 2.4-style configuration file. At least, I just set up Ubuntu 14.04 with a naive "apt-get install apache2 munin munin-node", and wasn't able to access http://localhost/munin/. Something like jm-3's patch seems important to apply.

I just want to add that having installed munin in 14.04 I had to perform the change in #5 to make it work. Can we get this into the bas package, it seems to have been around for some time now and it took me some time to figure out why apache wouldnt let me in!
