I'm running the latest Mythbuntu weekly build. Versions are:

I have Mythbuntu's weekly build repos enabled and have attempted to install Mythweb. It installed Mythweb as well as some PHP pieces but can't start Apache. Here's the output:

============================== Setting up apache2-mpm-prefork (2.2.9-7ubuntu3) ...

  • Starting web server apache2

Syntax error on line 107 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/mythweb.conf.apache: Invalid command 'php_value', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration


invoke-rc.d: initscript apache2, action "start" failed.

Setting up libapache2-mod-php5 (5.2.6-2ubuntu4.1) ...

Setting up php5 (5.2.6-2ubuntu4.1) ... Setting up php5-mysql (5.2.6-2ubuntu4.1) ...

Setting up mythweb (0.21.0+trunk20300-0ubuntu0+mythbuntu1) ... Your apache2 configuration is broken, so we're not restarting it for you. ===========================

I had thought that perhaps it was starting in the wrong order, as it looks like it installed php5 after installing & trying to start MythWeb, but attempting to start Apache after the fact gives the same error. Here are the relevant lines in /etc/apache2/conf.d/mythweb.conf.apache:

<Files *.php>

# These settings are intended for apache 2.x. If your version of apach


# doesn't support php_value, or things like memory_limit aren't working # as expected, then use these settings as examples for your own php.ini # files.

php_value safe_mode 0 php_value register_globals 0 php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0 php_value file_uploads 0 php_value allow_url_fopen On

php_value zlib.output_handler Off php_value output_handler NULL

# If you have a large number of channels, you may need to increase this # value to prevent PHP from running out of memory.

php_value memory_limit 64M

# Note: php_flag does not work in older versions of php

php_flag output_handler "NULL"
