Manual modification of web-server configuration files
ISPmanager 5 uses its own database to store the configuration of a WWW-domain. Very often, a server administrator modifies configuration files not in the domain's edit form, but directly in the configuration file. In this case, when he edits a WWW-domain in ISPmanager, his manual changed will be lost.
To save manual changes, when the WWW-domain edit form opens, ISPmanager reads its configuration file and add modified values into its own database.
How it works
Sometimes it may happen that a value is modified in the Nginx configuration file, but is not changed in Apache, etc. In that case, take the note of the following information:
- The Nginx configuration file has the priority (except for values specific for Apache, such as "List of CGI extensions")
- The Server or VirtualHost section, which accepts SSL-connections, has the highest priority within one file
When a user opens the WWW-domain edit form, he will be informed what fields have been changed.
List of parameters
The following parameters are added to the database:
|Parameter name on the field||Database field|
|Files extensions (CGI)||cgi_ext|
In order to disable the described functionality, use the Option DisableWebDBReadConf option in the Configuration file.
