Noone will explain you something if you do not ask

Ans it is really easy to find as the names are self explaining:

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-enabled/apache2_plugin.inc.php

Default Thanks!

So this is called only when changes are done in the UI?

I was looking for something cron driven.

This is event driven by the UI, the events are stored in the sys_datalog table and they were executed by cron.

Default Understood.

Is there an option to not overwrite these files if they were changed by the user? Otherwise we could modify server.sh to call some "save/restore" script before and after.

I can understand that this contradicts the approach of ISPConfig - at the end of the day, it is there to allow you to avoid fiddling with these files. Another approach would be to probably not put the additional subdomains in the same, but in different .vhosts files that are not and have never been managed by ISPConfig, thus leaving ISPConfig out of that game entirely.

Am going to think about this for a bit. Thanks for the help.

P.S. Something that would be nice to have: A password change for the mysql root password. That password is stored in about 3million places, and for the appliance it would be great being able to change that with a single command.

If you need vhosts with manual settings you should create them outside of ISPConfig. the vhost files of ispconfig should not be edited manually and it is not planned to change that. If you need some extra apache directives for a ispconfig vhost, you can add them in the apache directives field of the website.

It is stored in 2 places. The config.inc.php file for the interface and the one for the server.
