If there is different configuration for the same parameter in both conf/httpd.conf and a /conf.d/* file, which will take precedence?

I can’t find this explicitly stated in any official documentation.


It is not in the official documentation, because it is configuration specific. If you look at conf/httpd.conf you'll notice an Include directive that includes the files in conf.d/*

The resulting configuration is what is in httpd.conf with the content of every file in conf.d (in alphabetic order) added where the Include directive is.

    To add to this: Subsequent statements will override prior ones so the last one (in the parsed order explained by Andreas) will take precedence. – Sven Feb 20 '18 at 8:58
