Bug Fix Advisory mod_authz_ldap bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0482-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated mod_authz_ldap package that fixes one bug is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

mod_authz_ldap is a module for the Apache HTTP Server. This module provides
support for authenticating users against an LDAP database.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the RPM spec file did not mark /etc/httpd/conf.d/authz_ldap.conf
as a configuration file, which allowed any subsequent update to this package to
overwrite this file regardless of its local changes. With this update, the spec
file has been corrected to mark /etc/httpd/conf.d/authz_ldap.conf as
"%config(noreplace)", so that the file is no longer overwritten upon an update.
(BZ#533837)

All users of mod_authz_ldap are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which fixes this bug.
