dedicated box needed??

After my previous issue was fixed, I started taking a closer look at the httpd configurations for Live Journal. Can you only run this program on a box solely dedicated to LiveJournal?

I run a dedicated server (CentOS, CPanel, etc.) and have other hosted accounts. This is what my tech guys said after I contacted them about possibly making changes to the httpd.conf:

We seriously suspect that the changes can cause troubles for other accounts on the server. Changing apache's ServerRoot and PidFile is highly unrecommended. Cpanel will not be able to locate the correct pid files as it doesn't know about /var/run/apache-perl.pid.

So do I need to put LiveJournal on its own box?

Thanks
