gw.conf

Had an issue fixing proxypass stuff in apache2 that borked things up.
Thought it was webaccess, turns out I borked apache2 so it was not
listening on ssl.

Got that fixed, and had redone webaccess configs, now I seem to have
multiple gw.conf files that are trying to be read when apache loads, I
get these warnings:

Starting httpd2 (prefork) [Fri Dec 14 10:27:03 2012] [warn] worker
ajp://localhost:9009/gw/webacc already used by another worker

[Fri Dec 14 10:27:03 2012] [warn] worker ajp://localhost:9009/gw/webpub
already used by another worker

[Fri Dec 14 10:27:03 2012] [warn] The Alias directive in
/etc/opt/novell/httpd/conf.d/gw.conf at line 4 will probably never
match because it overlaps an earlier Alias.


Apache2, tomcat6, and webaccess seem to be working fine, I'd like to
get rid of these warnings. I've been scouring and cannot seem to find
anywhere else the gw.conf file is referenced that seems out of the
ordinary.

Apache2 on oes11, running on sles11sp1.

Re: gw.conf

This is apparently normal.


9.2.1 WebAccess Installation Issue

When you install WebAccess on Open Enterprise Server (OES) 11, you might see the following warning messages:

[warn] module rewrite_module is already loaded, skipping
[warn] worker ajp://localhost:9009/gw/webacc already used by another worker
[warn] The Alias directive in /etc/opt/novell/httpd/conf.d/gw.conf at line 4
will probably never match because it overlaps an earlier Alias.

These warnings are cosmetic. The installation proceeds successfully.

I was able to fix this message this morning. It appears that there is a gw.conf in two places (both symbolic links to the same location). I deleted the one I knew to be in the wrong place and the message about "used by another worker" disappeared. During the configuration of Webaccess for GroupWise 2014/2014sp1 you are asked for the location of the gw.conf. The default is /etc/opt/novell/httpd/conf.d but the *correct* location from many versions of GroupWise is actually /etc/apache2/conf.d.

While they point to the same location symbolically (/etc/opt/novell/groupwise/webaccess/gw.conf they apparently try to do whatever is needed twice with the second one causing the message(s) to appear "used by..." By deleting the gw.conf symbolic link from /etc/opt/novell/httpd/conf.d the messages (I saw two) disappeared and apache2 runs fine on OES11sp2.

Re: gw.conf

Now if I could just get novell-tomcat6 to start. My WebAccess 2014sp1 would be back up and running. I see a lengthy java error being thrown in the catalina.out file found in /var/opt/novell/tomcat6/logs and its not readily pointing to where a problem is hiding.

Any help appreciated.

I stumbled across the following TID and after completing what it said to do with the software update in YaST, novell-tomcat6 starts and is running per the catalina.out
