Httpd not starting after failed update

(John) #1

got an message about this pending update:
sangoma-pbx.noarch 2107-3.sng7 (current: 2104.1.sng7)

tried to run it but i never appeared to complete. HTTPD appeared to die. Did a fwconsole stop and fwconsole start but no luck. Even rebooted the entire server but it doesn’t appear to be starting.

You can get the content of line 15 with

 cat -n /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

that might give you a clue to what’s up

(John) #3

it appears to be a reference to enable TLS 1.3. Does this apache support 1.3?

13  SSLCryptoDevice builtin
14  #
15  SSLProtocol +TLSv1.2 +TLSv1.3
16  SSLHonorCipherOrder on


Strange. On my system, 1.3 is not supported by Apache, but not requested by ssl.conf. Either take out the 1.3 reference from ssl.conf, or see

if you really want it.

I have no idea why the updates are inconsistent.

(John) #5

That did it, removing 1.3 let HTTPD start up.

(Lorne Gaetz) #6

You’re running the SNG7 distro, where did that config come from? I don’t think System Admin could have generated that.

Apache SSL protocols are controlled in Sysadmin, https setup. If you submit that page with no changes, does +TLSv1.3 come back?

(John) #7

resubmitting through sysadmin left 1.2 in place. it didn’t appear to add 1.3. i wonder if the 2107-3 update somehow inserted that.

(Lorne Gaetz) #8

I’ve checked several systems and not seeing it, all are on sangoma-pbx 2107-3.

(Franck Danard) #9

For my part, I’ve got this on my system.

sangoma-pbx.noarch                         2107-3.sng7           @sng-pkgs
httpd.x86_64                             2.4.6-93.el7.centos      @sng-base/7

Regarding your version, maybe there was a unknown setting on SSL.

Please, use ssh console and type:

# fwconsole sa rsp

And your SSL settings will be like this:

SSLProtocol all -SSLv3

If you decide to change your SSL settings, then please click on the help icon here and you will be redirected to the web site using your current apache and SSL version.
If you select a wrong value, the risk is to get this kind of error.
Using fwconsole sa rsp, you restore the default settings.
