It should be in
/etc/apache2/
or
/etc/apache/

Locate only works if updatedb is installed and build the database.

Better to use as root:
Code:
find / -name httpd.conf

Hi, check vsftpd startup script on /etc/init.d/ directory, if it is available then you can start services using
#service vsftpd start
OR
#/etc/init.d/vsftpd start

NOTE:- you have new issue, if it is not relevant to current post. please start new threads as "repo" mentioned
