Apache: Your host is an idiot

Ok, I broke my Web server and I didn’t even notice. I broke it so badly that when it re-started, it didn’t even create an access_log. I noticed it a few minutes ago, switched over to my backup Web machine, fixed the problem, and re-launched the primary Web server.
What did I do? I removed the default cURL RPM that came with FC3 and replaced it with cURL compiled from source.
Unfortunately, PHP couldn’t find libcurl.
I am amazed the server was still running in any form.
Off to run some more tests…UGH.

  1. I’m a Canadian (living in Canada), so I don’t profess to know everything about the US political system. However what I don’t get is why people insist that if a Conservative says something that could also come out of the mouth of a bible-banger, that his motivation must be religious.
    Speaking only for myself, I’m fairly agnostic, but I find myself agreeing with a lot that is said from the Republicans. Not because “praise Jeeeeeeesus!”, but because I think it is ultimately the better decision for the society. I don’t say everything is right (there must be some way to offer access to health care without imposing punitive taxes like we have in Canada), but I certainly don’t dismiss their ideas because they smell Christian.
    Oh well, back to reading stuff on web performance, which is what I originally came here for 🙂
