Fedora 1, Apache, httpd.conf file


Ok, so I edit and change my httpd.conf file using vi. Change it a WHOLE bunch of times. Now I'm looking at the top of the file, and it says that system-config-http edits this automatically, and all my changes will be lost the next time I run the program.

Can you see what my question is gonna be? :-P

How do I tell Fedora's http config program not to wipe my changes? I don't wanna lose all the changes just because I ran the damn config program one morning!


Thanks in advance,

Turner

Well, you could just not run the config program, and then it wont over-write it ;-) Heck, even if you do run it, when you open the program it should read httpd.conf and display the settings currently in use, and then it would only wite over them if you changed something and saved.

And if you're really worried about messing up your configuration, just

cp httpd.conf httpd.backup.conf

Good luck!

Easy enough. :-)

I did the backup, but I was just worried that the config program was storing an alternate conf file somewhere, for comparison.

Thanks!
