If I'm understanding what you're asking, generally if you make changes to Apache; e.g., editing httpd.conf
, you need to stop and restart Apache to see those changes (you can execute apachectl restart
as root for example). Additionally, if you're viewing with a browser, you need to either clear the browser cache or force page reload (shift-reload-current-page in Firefox) to see any changes. Also, you should be able to see your web page at http://your-system-name.whatever
assuming you've configured httpd.conf
to do so.
Hope this helps some.
