i'll look and get back to you

you need to specify that with a rsc_order constraint

     <rsc_order id="order_apache2" from="clone_ocfs2_www"
type="before" to="apache2_clone"/>

looks to be the wrong way around.

I recently added this to the DTD...
Read as:
     to_action to type action from

Which in your case is:
     start apache2_clone before start clone_ocfs2_www

as above, because you didn't tell us to do so

because it failed to start on both nodes
start failures are terminal

again, this is due to the ordering issue
