    In apache error_log I got -on average-
    499.000 lines of 500.000 are errors of missing:
    404.shtml , 500.shtml, 403.html, robots.txt and favicon.ico.

    That's messes things arround when searching logs, plus the space and io for all those lines. :D

    I know I could create them in cpanel-skel but I already got hundreds of accounts in multiple servers.
    Plus, this doesn't work for addon domains and subdomains.

    So, is there a way to "tell" apache to use specific error files for all accounts/domains only if these users don't have their own files in their public_html ?

    Or else I believe I should grep and awk the "DocumentRoot" of httpd.conf and so help me God with it,
    copy and chown files if not already exists, but I am a bit scared doing that.
    (Except if there is another way around too)
