Bug#803177: apache2: [PATCH] secondary-init-script fails (status 3) despite starting apache daemon

Package: apache2
Version: 2.4.10-10+deb8u3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I set up a second instance of Apache using
The init script starts apache sucessfully, but returns exit status 3.

It's probably an old bug, but now we have systemd we actually notice it.
Systemd treats this as a failed service which is pretty bad
(systemctl shows "degraded", and systemctl won't stop the daemon
if you ask it to).  More evidence below.

Debugging init scripts under systemd is awkward, but I noticed
secondary-init-script does "set -e".  Normally the primary script doesn't
run with "set -e" (which treats command errors as immediately fatal).

It seems clear we need to remove "set -e" from secondary-init-script.
I removed it and my problem was resolved.  Please apply :).
