Bug#480893: /usr/sbin/a2dissite: should be able to remove dead symlinks

Package: apache2.2-common
Version: 2.2.8-3
Severity: normal
File: /usr/sbin/a2dissite


a2dissite should be able to remove dead symlinks pointing from
sites-enabled to a no longer existant file in sites-available.
(bash_completion already gives you a proper list of sites from


  # ls -la /etc/apache2/sites-*/foobar

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 2008-05-12 17:33
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/foobar -> /etc/apache2/sites-available/foobar

But then you get the error message:

  # a2dissite foobar

Site foobar does not exist!
