How To Find Apache httpd.conf File

If you’re working on a server you’re not used to, it can be difficult to find the Apache httpt.conf file.
You might try the following.

At the command line type:

@> httpd -V

Its possible you may need to type this instead.

@> apache2ctl -V

You will get a list that looks something like this:

Server version: Apache/2.2.26 (Unix)

 -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
 -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="/private/etc/apache2/mime.types"

Look for the line that has the SERVER_CONFIG_FILE variable.
In this case the answer is the bottom line.
