Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Although, this behavior is intentional and provides many benefits in order to keep your software updated, it can also however be quite frustrating if you see and have to wait for this update to finish couple times a day. The default expiry time of system's metadata is 90 minutes, and therefor every time 1,5 hour elapses your system will download new repository updates.

Hostgator VPS generates apache's httpd.conf file automatically. Therefore, any new lines you add to apache's configuration file will be overwritten. In order to add new configuration settings we need to include a configuration. Open up your main config file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and search for a virtual host with the domain name you wish to edit. Last two lines of your virtual host should look similar to this:

# To customize this VirtualHost use an include file at the following location
#    Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2/linuxcon/*.conf"

uncomment the Include line by remove leading "#".

Next, create a directory to reflect the Include location:

# mkdir -p /usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2/linuxcon/
