I've had to replace my server, the old one runs CentOS and the new one runs Debian.
In Debian, Apache has
apache2.conf as its main configuration file with a number of others linked to it. In CentOS there is only one configuration file for Apache,
Question: may I use the old
httpd.conf file in the new server and if so, how do I ensure that the
httpd.conf settings will prevail over the existing configuration files?
The post at Ubuntu Apache: httpd.conf or apache2.conf? indicates that the existing configuration files should not be changed in case of updates.
I realize that my custom configuration can be put into
/etc/apache2/conf.d however, it is not clear to me whether the other configuration files in that location would conflict with it.
