    Hi,
    I am using a CRM system that requires specific configuration settings on the server. Yesterday I added some of the specificastions to the http.conf file located at:

    nano /etc/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

    Then I noticed when |I re-started the server all my changes disappeared. I later spotted the message at the foot of http.conf file saying this particular file should not be edited. It says we should use include files.

    My question is, where do I find the include file to add my changes?

    I need to add/change things like:

    Header: Referrer-Policy same-origin
    Header: X-Powered-By

    In addition I need to add these values:
    max_connections 151
    thread_cache_size 9
    key_buffer_size 8.00 MB
    query_cache_size 40 MB
    tmp_table_size 16 MB
    max_heap_table_size 16 MB

    I tried adding them to the following file (after google search it pointed me to that file):
    nano /etc/my.cnf
    But the changes don't take effect.

    Is someone able to tell me what the correct files are that I should be editing?

    Kind regards

    For httpd.conf you can try this this below in WHM
    • Home »
    • Service Configuration »
    • Apache Configuration »
    • Include Editor
    Then Select All Versions under Pre VirtualHost Include

    Enter what you need to put in and click on Update.

    For /etc/my.cnf file I do not mess with this. I run Joomla, Word Press and few others and had no issues with defauts.

    But in the Tweak Settings
    • Home »
    • Server Configuration »
    • Tweak Settings
    In the MySQL Tab I turned on everything including this below and allow cPanel to control it.

    Allow cPanel & WHM to determine the best value for your MySQL innodb_buffer_pool_size configuration? [?]
    cPanel & WHM will use your total number of tables to adjust the innodb_buffer_pool_size value during each MySQL restart.

    I hope this helps.
