Hi and welcome to LQ,

httpd.conf is a configuration file, so you don't run it. You have to run
Code:
service httpd start
to start the httpd daemon, that uses httpd.conf to setup its runtime configuration

The service is httpd not httpd.conf.
See in my previous post what you need to run (as root)

It worked thanks.

When i installed linux, it by default created conf and conf.d

I needed some modification in them so i created testconf and testconf.d.
The testconf has httpd.conf.test (This is modified from httpd.conf, but has configuration that i need)

Where can i specify that httpd.conf.test should run instead of default ones.

Thanks again.

You could edit httpd.conf, after making a backup of the original file. Besides this is a good practice to make backups of files you're going to edit.
Anyway, if you want to use a different config file, stop the service
Code:
service httpd.stop
and run:
Code:
/usr/sbin/httpd -f /etc/httpd/testconf/httpd.conf -k start
