Description Joakim 2003-09-27 06:53:50 UTC
In apache-2.0.47-r1 path for datadir is changed from "/home/httpd/htdocs" which 
also are documented in changelog, giving 'preparation for coming features' as 
reason. Fine (although it could be better announced to alert ppl)!

However, if you don't feel ready to deal with the changes but for some reason 
need to re-compile 2.0.47 you are easily into a conf problem - as 2.0.47 and 
2.0.47-r1 chare the same template files in net-www/apache/files

A recompile happens per automatic for instance when using #rev-dep to relink 
openssl deps from 0.9.6 to 0.9.7

I think it's a good idea to give the r1 rev it's own template files in ./files 
to avoid unnessesarry problems for users aka put back the old ones for 2.0.47 
and give explicite name to the r1 ones. The forced (and predictable) path 
change on r1 is enough I think!

Ok thanks.

Hmm if you rebuild -r0 then you just dont update the config files in /etc/apache
and let config protection work for you.  Does that
make sense?

I wasn't merely thinking of myself but other running into a mess because
of this. I saw the situation, which I knew how to handle, but thought of
reporting it as I see from the forum repeatedly ppl fail to deal properly
with the etc-update etc. Thought if just could save the board from more load

2.0.48 is stable
