That still doesn't explain why when i change the vm server to use a different template, why the values from the new template don't overwrite the config file to reflect the new config.
If i originally set a vserver to my copper plan, then i change the template for that server to reflect my bronze template, i guess i expect it to actually re-make the config for my vps, and reboot the vps with the new values.
It appears that when i do make that change (not a change to the physical template, just which template that vps points to) it does reboot the vps, so ispconfig recognizes a change was made, it just doesn't write the change in the config file.
Any thoughts? or am i off the deep end with this??
