22.5. Configuration Directives in httpd.conf

The Apache HTTP Server configuration file is /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. The httpd.conf file is well-commented and mostly self-explanatory. The default configuration works for most situations; however, it is a good idea to become familiar some of the more important configuration options.

Warning

With the release of Apache HTTP Server 2.2, many configuration options have changed. If migrating from version 1.3 to 2.2, please firstly read Section 22.2.2, “Migrating Apache HTTP Server 1.3 Configuration Files to 2.0”.
