Ah, hm, that's a good point. I hadn't thought about that, since the old
Shibboleth modules depended on Apache. But the current packages only
I'm not sure the best way to do this. Check for whether apache2.2-common
is installed, since it contains the init script? (Checking for the
existence of the init script may be a lurking bug later for upstart
systems, file-rc, systemd, etc.) Alternately, we could just ignore
failures on the invoke-rc.d command to restart Apache.
Does anyone have any suggestions about the best approach?
