Symptom 2:
When restarting apache (rcapache2 restart), the following error is returned:
httpd2-worker syntax error on line 177 of etc/apache2/httpd.conf  syntax error on line 99 of etc/apache2/default-server.conf syntax error on line 2 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/oes_http.conf syntax error on line 33 of /etc/opt/novell/httpd/conf.d/iprint_g.conf cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/mod_headers.so into server /sr/lib/apache2/mod_headers.so cannot opend shared object file: no such file or directory


An Apache update was put in the RUG Channel.  The slesp1-apache2-5629 update to apache2-2.2.3-16.17.5 caused the problem.  This update was removed from the Channel 13NOV2008. 

The Apache update is a security change, so reverting to a prior revision is not advisable. 

Install patch slesp1-apache2-5767 (apache2-2.2.3-16.17.7) or later.
