    apache problem

    Where is defined in the Apache2 server default download an html file name and location, and the definition of what that is?

    Re: apache problem

    The default location for HTML files in the default virtual host is /var/www

    You can change that by making a new directory and pointing to it with the DocumentRoot configuration directive.

    Re: apache problem

    hi, i was searching in internet answer for that question. is it possible that Apache configuration is in / etc / httpd / conf / httpd.conf or / etc/apache2/httpd.conf configuration file?

    Re: apache problem

    Neither. Most of the information you will find on the net is outdated. It is largely written for Apache 1.3.x and you are running Apache2.x, which has a very different configuration layout. In Apache2 httpd.conf should be left alone.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, you have a default configuration for a default virtual host. That default file is /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf
    You can change that file if you wish. If you want more virtual hosts, add more configuration files in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ and then turn them on with a2ensite. It's a little fancier than it used to be with Apache 1.3 but it scales much better. If you want something simpler to configure, you might try nginx instead of Apache2.

    searching online

    One thing to add is that when you search for material online about Apache, make sure you are looking for Apache 2. The configuration files changed quite a bit between 1.3 (the old version) and 2.x (the new version). The configuration directives on the inside are about the same, but the files have been divided up to make it easier to manage multiple virtual hosts on the same machine, each with different owners and adminsitrators.

    Is it? I think the dividing up is a Debian modification. Apache2 is Redhat/Fedora/CentOS still have the standard configuration layout.
