Version update of apache2 requires changes to site specific apparmor profiles

This document (000020546) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2


After updating apache2 to version 2.4.51, access to HTTP resources fail when apparmor is used in enforcing mode.


To restore access to the service, the apparmor profile (e.g. /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.httpd2) needs to be adjusted. Please change the entry

/run/ rwl


/run/* rwl

and restart the apparmor service by using


systemctl restart apparmor


apache2 2.4.51 handles PID files in a different way. Because the file path is exactly specified in the apparmor profile, apparmor does not recognize these files as valid files for the service execution and as a consequence, creating the files is denied.
