FNDCPASS + Does Autoconfig changes the custom settings?

HI all,

I have a doubt please clarify:

After changing the password using FNDCPASS for APPLSYS user the APPS
password also gets reflected. In some sites or documents people suggest to
run AUTOCONFIG after changing the password. but in some cases people suggest
just to change in wdbsvr.app/CGIcmd.dat files where APPS password is
hardcoded.
I have a confusion that whether we can go with manual change or run
autoconfig.
Does Autoconfig modifies or changes any custom settings which are done in
configuration files?. Please advice me.

Thanks,
RG
