A quick note to anyone upgrading their Debian installation on the bleeding edge ‘unstable’. The default Debian update doesn’t install the majority of the modules needed now in apache 2.2 the whole configuration has been made modular.
So, if you have this error:
Invalid command 'AddType', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
then you’re missing the ‘MIME’ module. Do a:
and all should be well — unless you use other bits and bobs too, in which
case you’ll see more ‘perhaps misspelled’ errors. For each one, look up the
Directive on the apache website,
you’ll see the ‘module name’ in there — make sure you
a2enmod each one and
retry apache. Keep going until it’s all working and voila — your apache will
be up and running again in no time.
