Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm tryin to configre the apache web server and the book i have says the file is located in /ect/httpd/conf but there is no directory it says. I know the webserver works but where could i find the configure file. Anyone know what other directory it might be in?
I got this linux of out of dummies book. i just installed everything.
I went to search files and for starting folder left "/" then i typed in httpd.conf and it come up with folder /ect/httpd.conf...but when i type this from the terminal why can't i get it?
Crashed, according to a post just above mine he already did... However, I think your suggestion is more along the lines of what I'd do too (I prefer locate over find). 1 think to note Z28kid is you may get several files from a search or a locate, post all of their locations up so we can help with which one to use...
That would show information on it, I actually use ls -l but ls should work. If httpd.conf is in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (which is confusing as all he!!) then you can edit it with your text editor, or you can just view it with less:
However, you do have to make sure you have read priv's on it. It should still show up in an ls assuming your are root and/or your user has execute priv's on the directories.
