Bug#337748: mod_mime_magic: can't read magic file /usr/share/misc/file/magic.mime

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.34-1
Severity: normal

The 2005-10-14 update of libmagic1 to 4.15-2 changed the location of
magic.mime from /usr/share/misc/file/ to /usr/share/file/ for FHS
compliance reasons. The Apache httpd.conf file needs to be updated to
reflect this.

libmagic1's failure to provide an upgrade path is reported as #334817
(which is CC'ed).

This bug is similar to archived bugs #159000, #170856, #173178, #197016,
#212782, and #230718. As this seems to indicate a pattern of
regressions, procedures and communication between the libmagic1 and
apache maintainers aimed at avoiding further repetitions may be needed.
