I'm going to leave aside the rest of the questions about packaging and
so forth, just to focus on how to deploy on OpenShift.

If you ssh in to the actual server (gear) that is running the www
service, your changes will be overwritten the next time someone
restarts the gear. That's by design.

What you want to do (normally) is do a git checkout to your local
system, do the config file tweaks there, and then git commit && git push.

The gear is not set to restart, so you'll then need to issue a command
to reload the httpd config for your changes to take affect.

That all said ... I haven't looked at how the www is setup in a while,
so I may be somewhat incorrect in details.
