I've changed the web hoster recently
and also upgraded from CentOS 5 to6.

Now I get this warning:

# service iptables restart
iptables: Flushing firewall rules:                         [  OK  ]
iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter          [  OK  ]

/etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.

# cat /etc/modprobe.conf

I wonder if it is safe to

# mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

Where there are already some files:

#  ll /etc/modprobe.d/
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root   52 Jul 11 10:53 anaconda.conf
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root  884 Jul 20 12:46 blacklist.conf
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root  382 Nov 12  2010 dist-alsa.conf
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root 5596 Nov 12  2010 dist.conf
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root  473 Nov 12  2010 dist-oss.conf

I'd hate to lock out myself, as I don't have
a remote console attached to my server.

(I'd have to book it and to wait)

Any opinions please?
