[Bug 1307548] Re: updating from 12.04 to 14.04 causes apache to not start


I performed the 12.04 to 14.04 upgrade this morning.  I was getting the same reported symptoms (AH00526: Syntax error on line 30 of /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/mythweb.conf:)
The detailed fix did not work on my machine either. 

When trying to start the apache2 server I got the following message:

AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully
qualified domain name, using Set the 'ServerName' directive
globally to suppress this message

  updating from 12.04 to 14.04 causes apache to not start

Bug description:
  Upgrading from 12.04 to 14.04 causes apache to not start:

   * Starting web server apache2                                                                                                                  * 
   * The apache2 configtest failed.
  Output of config test was:
  AH00526: Syntax error on line 30 of /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/mythweb.conf:
  You may not use 'Options +All' or 'Options -All'.
  Action 'configtest' failed.
  The Apache error log may have more information.

  This is because 12.04 had apache2 2.2.  14.04 has 2.4.  The supported syntax changed between apache releases.

  Fixed by:

  $ sudo rm /etc/apache2/sites-available/mythweb.conf
  $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure mythweb
  $ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

  I think during dist-upgrade we might want to either remove mythweb.conf so it can regenerate (easier/safer), or fix this in postinst for upgrade.
