Description Shad 2016-07-14 10:11:29 UTC

I have recently installed mod_mono for my Ubuntu 14.04 and Apache 2.4. It now crashes my Apache server because it fails on the mod_mono.so module referring to an API that has changed from Apache2.2 to Apache 2.4. How do I remove this error without downgrading my Apache? Or where can I change this setting from my terminal?

Below is a print out of my error from Apache

apache2: Syntax error on line 140 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/mod_mono.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_mono.so into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_mono.so: undefined symbol: unixd_config

While we aim to fix all bugs in mono, mod-mono is not a library we actively maintain anymore. On the other hand, we encourage the community to submit fixes for such issues through a pull request on github repository.

The sources for mod_mono can be found here: https://github.com/mono/mod_mono

Hey guys. Some good news. The fix for the situation is to first upgrade Ubuntu using the following command:

sudo do-release-upgrade

Then follow the instructions on the mono website and be careful to read those instructions completely and only include what is required for Ubuntu.

I upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to a version 15 release.
