Hi Alex,

I have found that the only way to save the (general, connection & logping)
properties is by executing the 'save properties' link in the properties
resource. Clicking the restart server or leaving through the Exit resource
does not save them. It appears that nothing contained in the httpd.props
file is written out, unless this 'save properties' link is followed. While
I would consider this a bug, Anselm may have a good reason. I guess we'll
just have to wait til his move back to France is complete, to find out. (:
sinc, -jeff
