Apache config files

I just installed Mandrake 10 with apache, MySQL and PHP.

I'm going to run a fairly simple dynamic site with some databasing.

I'm trying to configure apache, but all the info I find on the net talks about the httpd.conf file. When i look in the /etc/httpd/conf which is where mandrake installs the apache config files by default as far as I can see, I only see httpd2.conf and commonhttpd.conf

Can someone clear up exactly what I need to change in these files in order to specify what folder I want my website to by located, and anything else I need to configure to get apache up and running.

I've forwarded port 80 to my linux box. I'm just not sure what else to do now. (ie configure apache files)

I know this is a pretty broad question, but any answers are greatly appreciated

you probably want to stick to editing commonhttpd.conf, 'DocumentRoot' is where your website will be located. I think that is set in httpd2.conf. read up on apache's website, there are some great docs there.

/etc/httpd2.conf will probably be the config file for apache2. so if u run apache2.x.x this is the file u have to edit. did u install more than 1 version of apache on the box? once started apache u should find the detailed documentation at http://localhost/manual
