[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#290243: "don't configure apache" apparently still means "try to set up an htpasswd file in the wrong place"

puttputt:~# dpkg-reconfigure nagios-common
Stopping nagios: nagios.
There is no htpasswd command, so I can't create the password file
for you. You will have to figure out a way to create a .htpasswd
file yourself. When you do, it should be called:
and be mode 0640, owned by root, group www-data.
chown root.www-data /etc/nagios/htpasswd.users
chmod 0640 /etc/nagios/htpasswd.users
Reloading nagios configuration files.
Starting nagios: nagios.
The reconfigure was done to tell nagios-common not to bother trying to
configure apache, because it's failed every time.
I didn't expect it to still complain that it couldn't create an htpasswd
file, something that I had considered to be part of "configuring apache"
in this context of nagios setup.
