Will Cpanel auto-update break my config?

    I just installed litespeed httpd without incident on a Cpanel server. My question now is whether or not Cpanel's autoupdate (eg. when it goes to make changes to Apache, etc.) will break anything? Anyone have any experience with this?

    So far no major issues.

    Would it make sense to chmod 000 on Apache or is that just being paranoid.

    We still have Apache running. For now (at least) LSWS does not handle SSI so those all still have to be proxied back to Apache. I'm also not sure how adding a new domain will work if cPanel can't restart Apache.

    Actually, Cpanel somehow knows to restart lsws and not Apache. I'm not sure how this works off hand, maybe the staff here could fill us in?

    Assuming you followed the WIKI doc, it restarts because httpd.conf is updated. When httpd.conf is updated, LSWS will restart automatically.

    I didn't see any reason this would not be safe, was just looking for reassurance ;)
