Subject: apache2: upgrade caused virtualhosts to disappear
Date: Tue, 22 Jul 2008 15:52:15 +0100
Package: apache2
Version: 2.2.9-5
Severity: important

After upgrading Apache2 via aptitude full-upgrade all my virtual hosts
stopped working and pointed to the default site (the "It works!" message).

Restarting the server displayed this warning twice:
[warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts

All my VirtualHost entries had been defined with:
<VirtualHost *>

To fix the problem I added the port to the all the directives:
<VirtualHost *:80>

I don't understand why I had to do this when it was working fine before
the upgrade. The Apache manual is clear that specifying the port is
optional.

Best regards,
Andrew

The change was necessary to allow a reasonable ssl default 
configuration. It was described 
in /usr/share/doc/apache2/NEWS.Debian.gz . You can/should install 
apt-listchanges which can display relevant sections from all 
NEWS.Debian files before upgrades.

Cheers,
Stefan
