backup any config files before you edit them the first time.   thats 
really all that you're changing.   you shouldn't be replacing/modifying 
any files under RPM package management except those config files, and 
most of the major services like apache httpd have a conf.d directory 
where you make your changes by creating new .conf files rather than 
modifying the supplied ones.
