    Applied the EBS CPU for 12.1.3 (23144507)- and now Apache won't start.

    Syntax error in apps.conf as the apps_conf_1013.tmp template was updated to version 120.12.12010000.7.

    I have seen one other user have same issue on Windows x86-64, I've got the issue on AIX 6.1. Is this a known issue?

    I have an SR logged (3-13072658441)

    Des,

    I'm sorry that you're encountering issues with this.

    Support has started the bug-logging process so that we can review this in Development. The Support engineer assigned to your SR is out of the office, so you may wish to escalate your SR if you need someone to revisit this before then.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Hi,

    I have applied July 2016 EBS 12.1.3 CPU Patch (23144507) and Database 12.1.0.2.

    After applying the patch Apache won't start. As a work around I have updated the apps.conf file manually from backup and start the application services.

    Please help me.

    /d01/oracle/DEV4/inst/apps/DEV4_hcaiqebsapp02/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd

    Syntax error on line 89 of /d01/oracle/DEV4/inst/apps/DEV4_hcaiqebsapp02/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/conf/apps.conf:

    Regex could not be compiled

    Thanks

    Hi, Hari,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue with this.

    We can provide general conceptual guidance here, but I'm afraid that this blog isn't the best place to get technical support for specific issues like the one that you're working through.

    Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Hi Steven,

    I have the same issue while applying the July 2016 CPU patch# 23144507. As this patch brings in the new template (apps_conf_1013.tmp) and when autoconfig runs using this template, it brings into the syntax errors in the apps.conf file. As a result Apache won't start and throws the following error:

    Is this the know issue with this patch? My environment is AIX 7.1.

    /oracle/oracleR12/irecdev/inst/apps/irecdev_dc1dvofs11/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd

    Syntax error on line 89 of /oracle/oracleR12/irecdev/inst/apps/irecdev_dc1dvofs11/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/conf/apps.conf:

    Regex could not be compiled

    Thanks,

    --Mukarram.

    For now, I'm using this workaround till I get a formal fix from Oracle.

    Manually editing apps.conf - changing line 89 from

    <Location ~ ^(/)+OA_HTML(/)+*(portlets|providers)(/)+*>

    To

    <Location ~ ^(/)+OA_HTML(/)+(portlets|providers)(/)*>

    This allows the Apache to start.


  • guest Tuesday, September 20, 2016

    Hi Mukarram,

    This issue would be best handled by your logging a service request, so Support can attempt to reproduce the behaviour you are seeing.

    Regards,

    Robert.


  • Mukarram Tuesday, September 20, 2016

    Thanks, Robert

    I have logged a SR# 3-13356885351 and waiting for Oracle's feedback.

    Thanks,

    -Mukarram.
