This sometimes happens when you are not running checksetup.pl as root. To see the problem we ran into, run: /usr/sbin/apache2 -t -D DUMP_MODULES I investigated, and determined that because Gentoo had APACHE2_OPTS="-D DEFAULT_VHOST -D DAV -D DAV_FS -D PHP5 -D INFO -D LANGUAGE -D SSL -D SSL_DEFAULT_VHOST -D SUEXEC -D PERL -D PROXY" in /etc/conf.d/apache2, I needed to have all those defines on the command line to get it to report the modules loaded, instead of failing on things like SSL, etc. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run ./checkconfig.pl on a Gentoo system 2. Try manually running the command: /usr/sbin/apache2 -t -D DUMP_MODULES 3. Realize that with all the other -D it will work Actual Results: checkconfig.pl can't tell me if the modules are loaded or not; I had to manually check. Expected Results: checkconfig could perhaps have an easy to edit line where I could add the defines, read that file, or otherwise find the modules loaded. This is a minor issue, but perhaps it will help someone else who runs into it. I couldn't figure out why apache2 was working fine, but /usr/sbin/apache2 -t -D DUMP_MODULES wouldn't run until I realized it was ignoring /etc/conf.d/apache2 so it wasn't getting any defines.
Wow, that is a really odd way for a distro to configure Apache. How would you normally check the configuration of Apache from the command line, on your distro?

I'm not sure. The check I run is: apache2ctl configdump which gives me: # apache2ctl configdump /usr/sbin/apache2 started with '-D DEFAULT_VHOST -D DAV -D DAV_FS -D PHP5 -D INFO -D LANGUAGE -D SSL -D SSL_DEFAULT_VHOST -D SUEXEC -D PERL -D PROXY -d /usr/lib/apache2 -f /etc/apache2/httpd.conf' then a bunch of config stuff, and then: Server Settings Server Version: Apache/2.2.16 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.16 OpenSSL/0.9.8o mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.12.2 Server Built: Oct 1 2010 16:53:54 Server loaded APR Version: 1.4.2 Compiled with APR Version: 1.4.2 Server loaded APU Version: 1.3.10 Compiled with APU Version: 1.3.9 Module Magic Number: 20051115:24 Hostname/port: localhost:80 Timeouts: connection: 300 keep-alive: 15 MPM Name: Prefork MPM Information: Max Daemons: 150 Threaded: no Forked: yes Server Architecture: 32-bit Server Root: /usr/lib/apache2 Config File: /etc/apache2/httpd.conf Server Built With: -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/prefork" -D APR_HAS_SENDFILE -D APR_HAS_MMAP -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled) -D APR_USE_SYSVSEM_SERIALIZE -D SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT -D APR_HAS_OTHER_CHILD -D AP_HAVE_RELIABLE_PIPED_LOGS -D HTTPD_ROOT="/usr" -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/sbin/suexec" -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log" -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/apache2/mime.types" -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/apache2/httpd.conf" Server Module List mod_perl.c mod_php5.c mod_vhost_alias.c mod_usertrack.c mod_unique_id.c mod_ssl.c mod_speling.c mod_setenvif.c mod_rewrite.c mod_proxy_http.c mod_proxy_connect.c mod_proxy_balancer.c mod_proxy_ajp.c mod_proxy.c mod_negotiation.c mod_mime_magic.c mod_mime.c mod_logio.c mod_log_config.c mod_info.c mod_include.c mod_imagemap.c mod_ident.c mod_headers.c mod_filter.c mod_ext_filter.c mod_expires.c mod_env.c mod_dir.c mod_deflate.c mod_dbd.c mod_dav_lock.c mod_dav_fs.c mod_dav.c mod_cgi.c mod_autoindex.c mod_authz_user.c mod_authz_owner.c mod_authz_host.c mod_authz_groupfile.c mod_authz_default.c mod_authz_dbm.c mod_authn_file.c mod_authn_default.c mod_authn_dbm.c mod_authn_dbd.c mod_authn_anon.c mod_auth_basic.c mod_alias.c mod_actions.c mod_so.c http_core.c prefork.c core.c It seems this is a Gentoo specific thing.
