I have a small domain, which I use only for personal purposes. I'm the main user, and have at most 3-4 users at the same time. I use apache2 with passenger to serve redmine.

So I start with an empty apache2:

[email protected]:/home/# service apache2 start
[ ok ] Starting web server: apache2.
[email protected]:/home/# a2dissite
Your choices are:
Which site(s) do you want to disable (wildcards ok)?

Then enable my site, and restart (not reload) apache2:

[email protected]:/home/# a2ensite 200-redmine
Enabling site 200-redmine.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  service apache2 reload
[email protected]:/home/# service apache2 restart
[FAIL] Restarting web server: apache2 failed!
[warn] The apache2 instance did not start within 20 seconds. Please read the log files to discover problems ... (warning).
[email protected]:/home/# service apache2 restart
[FAIL] Restarting web server: apache2 failed!
[warn] There are processes named 'apache2' running which do not match your pid file which are left untouched in the name of safety, Please review the situation by hand. ... (warning).
[email protected]:/home/# pidof apache2
20948

Here's my 200-redmine.conf:

PerlLoadModule Apache::Redmine
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName redmine.xxxxx.xxx
    DocumentRoot /var/www/redmine/public/
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/redmine.error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/redmine.access.log common
    MaxRequestLen 20971520
    <Directory "/var/www/redmine/public/">
        Options Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AllowOverride all
    </Directory>
    SetEnv GIT_PROJECT_ROOT /opt/git/
    SetEnv GIT_HTTP_EXPORT_ALL
    ScriptAlias /git/ /usr/lib/git-core/git-http-backend/
    <Location /git>
        PerlAuthenHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::authen_handler
        PerlAccessHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::access_handler
        AuthType Basic
        Require valid-user
        AuthName "Redmine Git Repository"
        RedmineDSN       "DBI:mysql:database=redmine;host=localhost:3306"
        RedmineDbUser    "redmine"
        RedmineDbPass    "password"
        RedmineCacheCredsMax 50
    </Location>
</VirtualHost>

Now if I comment out the ScriptAlias / stuff, it works ! In addition, starting the server with 200-redmine disabled, then enabling it works. But apache2 will die randomly. Plus the location doesn't work.

The logs show nothing:
