Apache config files in Debian


I have installed the testing version of Debian. I am trying to setup apache web server. Where are the config files located? /etc/apache2/httpd.conf has the following written:

# This file is here for backwards compatibility reasons only

The config file seems to be apache2.conf. However, when I put DocumentRoot "/blah/blah" in apache2.conf, it ignores it and continues to use the default DocumentRoot. I am guessing that there is another config file that I put the DocumentRoot setting in. Can anyone help me out?

Try /usr/local/apache2/conf, which is the default location for Apache2 config files. If that doesn't work:

locate httpd.conf
