    Is anyone aware of any issues that editing httpd.conf by hand might throw up for cPanel?

    I'm not talking about huge changes, but rather things like:

    1. Changing specific IP addy to global (i.e. [VirtualHost 1.2.3.4] to [VirtualHost *])
    2. Adding to ServerAlias

    You know, simple things...

    One of the reasons I want to play with some of this is that I need to move some sites around (IP addresses), and I don't want them to go down while I wait for propagation... So it seems to me I can "Change a site's IP" in cPanel, then go back and add both IPs (new and old) or change to "*" in httpd.conf...

    Just was curious if anyone knew anything that would make cPanel choke...

    (I'm a budding Linux admin - i.e., I'm trying to learn, but I'm no expert yet... Still need cPanel for a lot of things. Besides, it's easier to use cPanel for what it does well... :-D)

    Go on, have a guess
    Changing the ServerAliases (if you're adding to them) shouldn't be a problem. Changing the IP address will probably break some things in WHM, but if it's only a temporary measure (i.e. you're going to change it back to an IP address later) it might be OK so long as you don't change the account detail stuff in WHM for that domains account.

    That makes sense...

    Thank you for the advice! :-D

    <cPanel complainer>What, you mean cPanel might actually pay attention to that stuff?</cPanel complainer> ;) ;) ;)

    (I suppose there will be complaints until cPanel goes psychic and gains the ability to perform miracles... Really, I think it does miracles as is... hehehe)
