    Where shold httpd.conf be located


    Where is httpd.conf file supposed to be? According to some resources:
    The httpd.conf file can be located on any UNIX-based system that complies with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard under the following path: /etc/httpd/httpd.conf.
    But on my machines it is in etc/

    And some of my machines there is back up version as well and some machines don't.

    Each distro will manage config files in their own way. There is no global standard, aside from possibly "somewhere in /etc". You need to seek out resources related to your specific distro to learn how it handles such things.

    Ubuntu for example doesn't even have a httpd.conf. Instead in has a number of files stored in /etc/apache2 (and subdirs) which together make up the server configuration.

    Possibly '/usr/local/apache2/conf' - depending on the distro, and how apache was installed.

    Can also be under '/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/conf' if you're using IBM's (*awful!) version of Apache . . . . .
