Ubuntu: Installing libapache2-mod-fcgid, but can't get through configure



Question:

I have setup two servers today from a vmware template. One one this worked, the other it didn't. The only difference is that on the failing one I ran apt-get distupgrades from the last few days before the command and on the other I didn't. Other than that they are functionally identical. Just on different subnets with different names.

When I run sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-fcgid I get the following error. I tried running apt-get clean, purge, and autoremove. I'm still getting this error.

Selecting previously unselected package libapache2-mod-fcgid.  (Reading database ... 155482 files and directories currently installed.)  Preparing to unpack .../libapache2-mod-fcgid_1%3a2.3.9-1_amd64.deb ...  Unpacking libapache2-mod-fcgid (1:2.3.9-1) ...

I've tried apt-get install -f.

I've tried dpkg-reconfigure libapache2-mod-fcgid

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure libapache2-mod-fcgid  /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: libapache2-mod-fcgid is broken or not fully installed  

Any idea how to figure out what is causing the error or get past this problem?


Solution:1

I resolved my problem by disabling the webmin (virtualmin) and apache services and trying the install again. It worked just fine with those two services stopped. I was able to start them back up after the install.

If someone can explain why this was the resolution, I'll gladly give you the credit. I'd guess something with RAM usage, but both machines had the same RAM. Maybe it had something to do with configuration order or something.
