Subject Re: [users@httpd] Locked Apache configuration file
Date Sat, 20 Mar 2010 13:23:01 GMT
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it does not solve the mystery. 
I installed the tool and used the search option to find references to 
the file, but without result. I am not an expert in these things, but I 
tried finding references to the file or its folder, etc. in various 
ways, but it does not return any results.
Another thing that I observed is that I can rename the file, but if I do 
so, the file is immediately recreated.
