    I have tons of questions regarding Apache :) I'll post one per message

    1st question:
    In Power Panel I went to Container Management / Packages and searched for httpd, I found "httpd 2.2.3-11.el5_1.centos.3" with an Up-to-date status.

    The latest version is Apache 2.2.9. Where/how to upgrade?

    2nd question

    I see that by default apache loads mod_perl, libphp5, mod_proxy_ajp and mod_python.

    I want to disable all these modules in order to have a lighter apache. Which is the correct way? I can just remove the corresponding files from /conf.d folder and make a apachectl restart.

    Broadly speaking, can I adjust the Apache config myself and what is the right way to do this?

    3rd question

    This question is related to the second one.
    I've just added a domain and Plesk created the hosting config for the website.

    looking at /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/conf/httpd.include I see
    "DO NOT MODIFY THIS FILE OR ANY PART OF IT. THIS CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER PLESK
    # FUNCTIONING OR FAILURE, CAUSE DAMAGE AND LOSS OF DATA. IF YOU REQUIRE CUSTOM
    # MODIFICATIONS TO BE APPLIED TO THE CONFIGURATION, PLEASE, PERFORM THEM IN THE
    # FOLLOWING FILE(S):
    # /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/conf/vhost.conf
    "

    hmm, I don't see an Include vhost.conf in this file, maybe I'm missing something, but at which point this file is loaded?

    And the main question: I'd like to have my own config file with vhosts and don't need the Plesk interface to configure it. I assume I can just Include it after the line
    Include /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/conf/httpd.include
    in /conf.d/zz010_psa_httpd.conf for ex.

    It means that I can only add the domains from Plesk and the apache conf for them to create manually?
