Plesk should manage alteration of config files

    Ok, I am fed up with Plesk overwriting manual settings in the config files. There is a simple solution Plesk could implement:

    Make a list of all the standard config files one needs for server tweaking:
    - httpd.conf
    - php.ini
    - mysql.conf
    - vhost.conf by domain (similar to power toys)
    - proftpd.conf
    - smtp_psa.conf

    Create a "custom admin settings" directory somewhere in /psa

    In this directory store a copy of the above files.
    Each time PSA is upgraded, create a .rpmsave.01 ... .rpmsave.06 (incremental with full history).

    Then create a form in Plesk panel to text-edit the active config files. Each time a file is edited, a backup of the previous file is created in the directory.
    Allow admin to save a file with custom name in that directory (in order to keep a current standard settings file).

    With that functionality (takes about half an hour to create), it would be much more easy to keep a server correctly configured.

    If Plesk doesn't do it, then it is maybe an idea for Power Toys expansion?
