Description Enrico Scholz 2001-03-02 10:19:31 EST
The configuration files in /etc/httpd/conf ({access,httpd,srm}.conf} are
containing usually a lot of manually added/modified entries and don't
change between different apache versions.

So it makes no sense to install at any update the RH-configuration files
and rename the old ones to ...rpmsave. It's better to mark them as
`%config(noreplace)'.
Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2001-03-06 11:47:51 EST
Seconded.
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2001-05-29 18:09:49 EDT
still in apache-1.3.20-1
Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2001-06-11 16:20:09 EDT
since the default httpd.conf enables modules disabled by me formerly and changes
security-relevant options, I will mark it with severity "Security"...
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-07-24 15:05:50 EDT
There weren't marked noreplace for the sake of a documentroot transition
between 6.2 and 7.0, but this will be changed in 1.3.20-6 and later.
