Bug#224390: apache-ssl: SSLCacheServerPort: httpd.conf not updated

Package: apache-ssl
Severity: important
Tags: patch sid

In some sense this could be a reopening of bug 215011.

I have been running apache-ssl for some time.  At some point I started
getting the errors (as reported in 215011) in my error log:

SSL23_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:unknown protocol
gcachecommon.c:108: ReadThing: Assertion `nRead == sizeof usLength' failed.

The fix, for apache-ssl version 1.3.28-2 (which was supposedly
implemented in a later version) was to change the following entry in

SSLCacheServerPort 443 to
SSLCacheServerPort /var/run/gcache_port

This fix *does* work, but it never gets written to the httpd.conf file
even if you dpkg-reconfigure apache-ssl

I purged apache-ssl and reinstalled and the httpd.conf file is now
correct, but of course one then has to remerge old modifications and
users have to handle the new certificate.

This really needs to be done in postinstall.
