Jessie Apache Upgrade

This page notes all the things that need to change in apache when upgrading fom debian wheezy to debian jessie.

.conf extensions[edit]

Apache no longer reads any files that don't end with .conf. This means at least renaming all the sites configuration in sites-enabled to have a .conf extension.

conf.d directory[edit]

In previous versions, apache used to read additional configuration from the "conf.d" directory. This is no longer true in jessie, so any configuration that lies in there needs to be moved to conf-available and then enabled with a2enconf.


SSLCertificateChainFile is deprecated. The correct way of dealing with this is to chain the CA in the certificate, so create a new .pem file that contains the original certificate (first) concatenated with the CA certificate (second) and then set that in SSLCertificateFile

access control[edit]



Order allow,deny
Allow from all


Allow from all
Require all granted
