[Server-devel] xsce httpd.conf

xsce has an httpd-xs.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf, which is a customized version of httpd.conf.  It gets used because /etc/sysconfig/httpd has a clause OPTIONS= -f conf/httpd-xs.conf.

Except that in the ansible install /etc/sysconfig/httpd doesn’t get set.

httpd-xs.conf is definitely needed, because it has a lot of settings not in the stock httpd.conf.  But because it replaces httpd.conf it also has lots of stock settings that are not unique to xsce.


We either need to modify ansible to set /etc/sysconfig/httpd or we need to put httpd-xs.conf into /etc/httpd/conf.d and have in contain only the settings we care about for xsce.  In the first approach we have basically taken ownership of all settings for httpd.  In the latter we have only taken ownership of the settings that are different in xsce, but we could get problems where settings accumulate rather than override (such as listen).

So what’s the answer?

btw while we are at it we should clean up the httpd-xs, xs-httpd, xs.conf, etc. proliferation of conf files.
