including other conf files in httpd.conf

including other conf files in httpd.conf

Hello--
                One of my peers has gotten into the
                habit of creating additional conf
                files that get included at the end of
                httpd.conf (1.3x).
                These additional conf files hold
                settings for applications that are
                being served through the web server
                (i.e. Peoplesoft, Tomcat and Cold
                Fusion). Other conf files hold
                parameters specific to our environment
                and load so files for our authorization
                schema (Kerberos).
                I remember being so happy the day that
                -- I think it was Apache 1.3.12
                -- was released and the srm, access and
                httpd conf files were merged
                into one.

                My question though is this:
                The conf files are included at the end of the
httpd.conf. Virtual
                hosts are currently defined in both the main httpd.conf
files and the
                extraneous conf files. SO files are loaded in both the
main conf file
                and secondary conf files.
                Does this matter? Will this effect Apache performance,
load time? I
                know it effects my troubleshooting time ;-)
                Thanks.

shouldn't matter. the conf files are parsed at startup and all info is
transferred to internal structures then...

but i hat it too to have to search for the correct file when config is
spread in lots of files...

1. Can I define srm.conf, access.conf in httpd.conf ?

I defined ErrorDocument 403 /sorry.htm
in srm.conf, because I found this instruction in this file in a commented
line with examples.

I Found I can define ErrorDocument in httpd.conf file instead of srm.conf
I didn't know this.

What I don't know is, If I can define all my src.conf and access.conf inside
httpd.conf
or only some instructions.

Thanks
