    Plesk messed up httpd.conf with awstats installed

    I installed the awstats package which has been working just fine for months now. However this am, Plesk evidently rewrote the main apache config file and by error, put the include line above inside the last <Directory> block for awstats like this:

    <Directory "/usr/local/awstats/wwwroot">
        Options None
        AllowOverride None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    Include /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.include
    The problem of course is that all the commands inside the httpd.include file(s) are illegal inside a directory block so apache would not start and all the domains on the server were down. I think the configuration files are regenerated early morning so unfortunately the webserver might have been down for several hours while I was sleeping peacefully!

    How can I prevent this from happening again?

    Ok, duh.... the answer I guess was obvious, early morning panic. This is what I did,

    I created a new file awstats.conf, moved all of the lines from /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf that were specific to awstats to and placed it into directory /etc/httpd/conf.d

    Hopefully this will eliminate the problem from happening again.

    Please let me know anyone if I'm missng something.
