This is an often misunderstood aspect of plesk. Yes the configuration
files are autogenerated and replaced anytime a system configuration is
changed but there is always a place for you to inject your changes in a
way that lets them remain persistent.
* In the case of a global setting you just add a custom conf file to
/etc/httpd/conf.d/ named anything.conf and it will be picked right up.
* In thew case of a domain specific setting you create/edit a vhost.conf
file in the sites conf directory.
If you didnt know about these two insertion points i can see why ou
might think plesk a pain but it really is a decent way to manage
configuration files and allow custom modifications too. (This is not an
endorsement of plesk as a whole).
