This is the way I do it.
I use Postgresql and PHP to store and write config. files.
Then the config. file is sent to the remote machine.

How so ?
A Relational database can store huge amounts of data.
It's simple send a machine some config data.
I use both Daemon's and Cron jobs to listen/check for new
I like this method and plan to stick with it.
