Apache conf files

Hi all, my first post on this great site!!

Well, i'm just installed Mandrake 9.1 to use as test server.

I use webmin and some terminal commands..... just have a question regarding http2.conf

iŽm looking at my /etc/httpd/conf directory and i'm lost here...

I've a file called httpd.conf and another file called httpd2.conf... also some virtual host configuration its located on the file Vhosts.conf inside my /etc/httpd/conf/vhost directory

My question... aparently webmin wants to use httpd.conf, but i notice that apache its using httpd2.conf and Vhost.conf in place of the httpd.conf

So why 2 httpd confs?... Which one should i use?... and how can i disable the one iŽll not use?

Sorry for my question if its kind of confussing, but i'm confused as well... the previous experience with server config was on Mandrake 8.2 which i just made my config one time and was only with httpd.conf (never before httpd2.conf)

Thanks in advance to help me understand it better this.

BTW, when i restart apache, this is what i receive:

Terminando httpd-perl: [ OK ]
Shutting down httpd2: [ OK ]
Iniciando httpd-perl: [ OK ]
Starting httpd2: [ OK ]

as you notice, it says httpd2.conf and not httpd.conf

Lightbulb Apache 1.3 and Apache 2.0

Mandrake 9.1 comes with both Apache 1.3 and Apache 2.0

When you restart Apache, it says Starting httpd2, that means Apache 2.0 is installed.
You can confirm this by typing rpm -qa | grep apache at the command line, this will give you a list of all Apache RPMs on your system.

In Apache 2.0, Virtual Hosts are now stored in Vhost.conf.

As for webmin, it is possible that it does not yet recognize the Apache 2.0 setup.
