If it is just for one Vsite or a couple of them, then the best way is to
put it into the include file of that Vsite.

Example: /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/site1.include

The include files will never get overwritten by the GUI.

All the rest of the Apache configuration is under /etc/httpd/. If you
wanted to make these changes available for all Vsites without having to
worry about them getting overwritten, you could create a new config file
like this:


Just put your changes into that.

After modifying the configuration you need to restart Apache:

/sbin/service httpd restart

On 5209R that would be this command:

systemctl restart httpd.service

With best regards
