Referencing configuration lines by numbers

Talk status
This discussion is done.

This is a very bad practice, line numbers in default configuration files change often and thus may be malicious and misguiding. Please add a real source code snippet/block showing the relevant part of the configuration file, there is a specific template for this. I appreciate you make so many contributions 666threesixes666, but please make sure they are of good quality and don't misguide users. Smartass (talk) 08:08, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

sorry about all of that, this was one of my first commits. i was still sloppy at the time getting used to all of this. i agree, line numbers should be omitted in favor of sed commands. my objections are that new servers should be default, as to not introduce security risks. there needs a wiki of general strategy of construction of servers, backup of data and deployment of new servers. i am aware that this page probably needs re-building of my commits.666threesixes666 (talk) 23:54, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
