The cause is #979813 whose "fix" included:
- if invoke-rc.d apache2 status > /dev/null 2>&1; then \
- invoke-rc.d apache2 reload > /dev/null 2>&1; \
+ if pgrep -f ^/usr/sbin/apache2 > /dev/null; then
+ invoke-rc.d apache2 reload
which dropped redirection in the reload line.
Changing querying status to pgrep is also bogus: it will detect any apache2
process rather than just ours. But this is not the issue at hand.
To stop the mails from logrotate, could you please change back:
- invoke-rc.d apache2 reload
+ invoke-rc.d apache2 reload > /dev/null 2>&1
otherwise, people running Bullseye will be mightily unhappy.
I also wonder why such a cleanup was done late during hard freeze.
