It looks like I have had a few lookers at this topic, but no takers yet.
I have studdied my httpd.conf carefully and noticed that I can add paramaters to the apache servers startup by adding to the post_virtualhost_2.conf file.
I understand that this negates the control from cPanel but I will not need to use mail or other services for these domains.
Can I just duplicate the current entries I see for my primary domains
sections? Replacing the ip address and domain names in the appropriate sections, using the same usegroup names?
