There's a saying in the US: "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all". I think that could be modified a bit to something like "If you have nothing constructive to add, and prefer to make passive-aggressive pot-shots from the sidelines, say nothing at all." As for the topic at hand... I am not what one might call an "advanced" user of apache -- I usually host one or two sites, and even with that minimal config I find it difficult to configure apache by only creating files in the conf.d directory. I've not done a complete analysis, but often it seems like settings in the main httpd.conf file do not get overridden completely for every case. I always end up editing the httpd.conf file when the main purpose for a server is to act as a web server. I'd really like to know how to handle this as close to the "CentOS Way" as possible.
