I always figured that the "CentOS way" to handle that was to put them into the conf.d folder. Is there an advantage to using this method? One thing I can think of is that the conf.d is included in the middle of the httpd.conf file, while this would be at the bottom. That is exactly my reasoning. The config file, as distributed, has the virtual host containers at the end of the file. Using a separate vhost directory maintains this.
