Which config files are overwritten on upgrade

Postby plutocrat » Thu Feb 02, 2017 11:41 pm

Hi,
Don't know if this is the right place to ask this. I'm new to VestaCP, but have been running Linux servers for many years. I just discovered VestaCP and I like it a lot, but I'm still on a learning curve.

So in the process of setting up my VestaCP server, I've modified a few config files. I just wondered if these will be over-written when the next upgrade of VestaCP happens. Specifically
/etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
/etc/apache2/conf.d/roundcube.conf
/var/lib/roundcube/.htaccess

I also created a couple of templates in /usr/local/vesta/data/templates/web/apache2/ I'm guessing those will be OK. How about if I modify the other templates? Will my changes to those stick, or should I just copy them and make changes to the copies?

I also made changes to main server config files. Are these safe too?
/etc/apache/apache2.con
/etc/mysql/my.cnf

apache.conf and my.cnf not will be replaced

Roundcube.conf not and phpmyadmin.conf this files not are remplaced by vesta but maybe be remplaced by your sytem (apt-get or yum)

In /usr/local/vesta/data/templates/web/apache2/ you will create new files and not edit vesta files.

OK, thanks. Good to know.

apt-get usually prompts whether it should update any config files when it runs, and the default action is to keep the existing conf file, so I think I'll probably be OK with roundcube and phpmyadmin.
