Summary: broken log messages on startup in win32 version
Product: Apache httpd-2 Reporter: Vasya Pupkin <spambox>

Description Vasya Pupkin 2008-07-27 08:49:40 UTC
After switching from 2.2.8 to 2.2.8 I found out it writes something like this to error.log during startup:

Starting the Apache2.2 service
The Apache2.2 service is running.
] Apache/2.2.9 (Win32) PHP/5.2.6 configured -- resuming normal operations

Before, it was only writing this:

[Sun Jul 13 06:00:04 2008] [notice] Apache/2.2.8 (Win32) PHP/5.2.6 configured -- resuming normal operations

What I find wrong is that "] " in the beginning of line that 2.2.9 writes. Something is definitely broken, and even if this doesn't look dangerous, it's better to be checked and fixed.

Is this still broken in 2.2.11?

*** Bug 53552 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Jeff Trawick 2012-07-22 22:14:16 UTC
This is still broken in trunk.
See 53552 for some additional information.  Another tiny note:
The fprintf(stderr, invocations in service.c splatter over the error log wherever the stderr handle in that process thinks the extent of the file is, instead of appending to the current end of the file, hence the corruption.

Please help us to refine our list of open and current defects; this is a mass update of old and inactive Bugzilla reports which reflect user error, already resolved defects, and still-existing defects in httpd.

As repeatedly announced, the Apache HTTP Server Project has discontinued all development and patch review of the 2.2.x series of releases. The final release 2.2.34 was published in July 2017, and no further evaluation of bug reports or security risks will be considered or published for 2.2.x releases. All reports older than 2.4.x have been updated to status RESOLVED/LATER; no further action is expected unless the report still applies to a current version of httpd.

If your report represented a question or confusion about how to use an httpd feature, an unexpected server behavior, problems building or installing httpd, or working with an external component (a third party module, browser etc.) we ask you to start by bringing your question to the User Support and Discussion mailing list, see [https://httpd.apache.org/lists.html#http-users] for details. Include a link to this Bugzilla report for completeness with your question.

If your report was clearly a defect in httpd or a feature request, we ask that you retest using a modern httpd release (2.4.33 or later) released in the past year. If it can be reproduced, please reopen this bug and change the Version field above to the httpd version you have reconfirmed with.

Your help in identifying defects or enhancements still applicable to the current httpd server software release is greatly appreciated.
