Summary0000567: rename or move default config files in distribution package to allow for easier upgrades
DescriptionTrivial point, Paul:

When installing an updated version, I shouldn't need to worry that my config files will be overwritten when unzipping a new version.
Steps To ReproduceUnzip new package over existing installation.

apache2/conf/httpd.conf, apache2/conf/extra/httpd-mpm.conf, and apache2/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf are replaced by versions in the zip file.
Additional InformationSuggest renaming apache2/conf directory to apache2/conf-dist.
TagsNo tags attached.
