 Thanks Jeff,

At the minute I'm creating a httpd.conf from a template, but at some point the procedure will be completely automated and I may need to merge a generated httpd.conf with an existing one. (This is IHS but I'm told it's identical to Apache as far as httpd.conf is concerned). I don't know where gdbm fits in but I'll look into it.

Thanks for the reply.

Gerard
