Description boec0025 2018-01-18 14:54:20 UTC
i am running fc 27.  i just upgraded from fc 24.  everything worked perfect in 24 but after upgrading to 27, i cannot write to my dav site.  i used the same config file and it didnt work so i went through and updated my config file and it wouldnt work...i keep getting the error...

i have tried every variant of creating this including setting the lock db directory to 777 and cannot get it to work.  i have taken down selinux and still not luck.  after spending hours and hours trying everything to isolate it, i can only think it must just be dav fs failing to create the lock db only.  

i can find no other way to troubleshoot this further.  if there is a way please let me know...

after searching for what seemed like years and years and years and years i finally fingered it out. APPARENTLY, apache uses apr-util to build a berkeley db for the dav lock db...of course, right?! well, the issue with that is httpd does NOT have a dependency of apr-util-bdb. why is that important, well those are the drivers for the apr-util. without those apr-util was not working right and not building the davlockdb. once i installed those and restarted the pc, dav once again works. HOORAY FOR ME!
