Description Jason Mann 2002-04-24 12:10:01 UTC
Due to an error in the Makefile for the www/apache13 port, the startup script installed for the apache13 port does not function correctly.

The makefile uses sed to replace occurences of '%%PREFIX%%' in a template script (files/apache.sh) with a real path, usually /usr/local. However, due to a lack of 'g' option on the sed statement, only the first instance of %%PREFIX%% on any given line is replaced.

Hence, this line in the template file:

[ -x %%PREFIX%%/sbin/apachectl ] && %%PREFIX%%/sbin/apachectl start > /d
ev/null && echo -n ' apache'

should end up like:

[ -x /usr/local/sbin/apachectl ] && /usr/local/sbin/apachectl start > /d
ev/null && echo -n ' apache'

but in fact ends up like:

[ -x /usr/local/sbin/apachectl ] && %%PREFIX%%/sbin/apachectl start > /d
ev/null && echo -n ' apache'

This is sufficient to make the script non-functional and prevent apache from being started at boot.


There are a couple of fixes:

1. One could manually edit /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache.sh and replace the missed instance of %%PREFIX%% with the correct path.

2. One could edit the apache13 makefile and add the 'g' option to the relevant sed statement e.g.

        @${SED} -e "s=%%PREFIX%%=${PREFIX}=g" ${FILESDIR}/apache.sh \
                > ${WRKSRC}/apache.sh

sed would then replace %%PREFIX%% globally on each line of the startup script, instead of just the first instance.
How-To-Repeat: Install the current apache13 port with the Makefile dated as follows:
