I'm using Ubuntu 7.04 server which comes with apache2. I done some directory surfring and found that there are two .conf files : apache2.conf and httpd.conf. I want to add the directives ServerName and DocumentRoot but into which of the conf files should I place the two directives ???
First of all excuse my English!
I just came by while searching for an answer for the same question!
And based on your argue guys, I did this small test just to see what file does apache depend on when it starts. I simply renamed httpd.conf to something else (e.g. http.conf_) and restarted apache. And the result? Apache failed to start!
Then did the same thing to the other file (apache2.conf), and again apache failed to start, which means that apache will actually read and apply any configs done in BOTH FILES!
And thanks for reading!!
P.S. did the test under Debian 5...
