I am unable to make subversion working on centOS 6.4. I am getting httpd unpacking error on installing mod_dav_svn. I am getting the following error.
Running Transaction Installing : subversion-1.6.11-9.el6_4.x86_64 1/3 Installing : httpd-2.2.15-29.el6.centos.x86_64 2/3 Error unpacking rpm package httpd-2.2.15-29.el6.centos.x86_64 warning: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf created as /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.rpmnew warning: /etc/httpd/conf/magic created as /etc/httpd/conf/magic.rpmnew error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/httpd/logs: cpio: rename Installing : mod_dav_svn-1.6.11-9.el6_4.x86_64 3/3 Verifying : mod_dav_svn-1.6.11-9.el6_4.x86_64 1/3 Verifying : subversion-1.6.11-9.el6_4.x86_64 2/3 Verifying : httpd-2.2.15-29.el6.centos.x86_64 3/3 Installed: mod_dav_svn.x86_64 0:1.6.11-9.el6_4 subversion.x86_64 0:1.6.11-9.el6_4 Failed: httpd.x86_64 0:2.2.15-29.el6.centos
Any help or suggestions will be appreciable. Thanks
For reference, here is the error message you gave us:
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/httpd/logs: cpio: rename failed - Is a directory
The problem is that
/etc/httpd/logs is not supposed to be a directory. It’s supposed to be a symbolic link. This is what it looks like on a live system:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 19 Aug 24 23:39 /etc/httpd/logs -> ../../var/log/httpd
So move the
/etc/httpd/logs directory somewhere else, and then try running the update.
