He can do so. The postrm only removes the file if it contains nothing
but the Alias, otherwise it is preserved.

AFAIK when listing it as a conffile, it had to be present in the deb
and thus would be installed unconditionally. But since previous
fibusql versions had to be configured manually in httpd.conf (there
was no conf.d/), I don't want to install the conffile for upgrading

Since this seems to cause a lot of questions and confusion, is there
something like a 'Debian web applications packaging howto"? When
looking at the bug list of the original post, it seems necessary.

Thanks and have a nice day!
