Bug#253271: apache2-common: changing port was problematic

Package: apache2-common
Version: 2.0.49-1
Severity: minor

The default virtual host stopped working when I changed to a nonstandard
listen port in /etc/apache2/ports.conf

As I didn't know apache2 configuration well, finding and fixing the
problem was difficult. The server started, home directories were
available, /var/log/apache/error.log got messages. However, access.log
didn't get messages, and ServerRoot was nonexistent "/htdocs"

As a fix, I removed from /etc/apache2/sites-available/default the ":80"
strings of virtual host configuration. I have no idea whether this would
be desirable in the file shipped by Debian -- in
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/examples.html I see several
possibilities. An alternative would be to note in ports.conf about this
other file to be changed to keep a consistent configuration.

With best regards,
Tuukka Hastrup
