/etc/httpd - config

/var/www/html - data

Depends on the program ;-) ... and distro ...


/usr/local/etc/httpd

/usr/local/etc/httpd
thanks for your quick response. can you do me a favor? can you have a look over here[i just copied this part from the installation guide for mediawiki] and tell me where is this "web directory" located. from your answer i feel it must be the /var/www, right? please correct me if i'm wrong. thank you.
Code:
Download MediaWiki from the official download page or from subversion.

Uncompress the files locally or on your server. This is usually done with software such as 7-Zip (free), WinZip, WinRAR or IZArc (free) on Windows. On Linux and Mac OS X, you can untar the file using this command:

tar xvzf mediawiki-*.tar.gz

If you have not already uploaded the files to your web server, do so now. Upload the files to your web server's web directory either by directly copying the unzipped folder or by using an FTP client such as FileZilla (Open Source Software, Windows) or Cyberduck (OSX). If you installed Apache, the correct directory is specified in your httpd.conf file (its typically <apache-folder>/htdocs). If you are using a Linux or Unix you can instead copy the files to any directory on your server and then make a symbolic link to that folder from your web server's web directory.
