Description Fab 2011-10-09 09:19:36 UTC

I'm playing with webapp-config. The configuration file (/etc/vhosts/webapp-config) is saying :

> # what web server are you using?
> # your choices are:
> #
> # apache
> # aolserver
> # lighttpd
> # cherokee

aolserver was removed long time ago, see bug #108022.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set vhost_server="aolserver" in /etc/vhosts/webapp-config
2. try using webapp-config
Actual Results:  
* Fatal error: Your configuration file sets the server type "Aolserver"
* Fatal error: but the corresponding package does not seem to be installed!
* Fatal error: Please "emerge www-servers/aolserver" or correct your settings.
* Fatal error(s) - aborting

Expected Results:  
webapp-config should not support dead packages. The problem still occurs on git [1].

Patch to remove aolserver references, and add cherokee to the list of supported servers in the manpage.

On a side note, this package has gone without a maintainer long enough, I think I'll take it under my wings and give it some love.
