You star apache by doing
Code:
#/etc/init.d/httpd start
If you want apache to start at boot time, you need to do
Code:
#chkconfig httpd on
The www directory is /srv/www/htdocs/.

You probably inserted the "#" in the command I showed you above. That just indicates roots command prompt and should not be entered as part of the command. If the command had a "$", then it means run it as a normal user.
