Missing xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I am on CentOS 6.4 64bit, I do not have an xorg.conf file in my /etc/X11 folder. I tried looking at the log for Xorg but it doesnt tell me what xorg.conf file it is using. I need this xorg.conf file so I can make my VNC server log into an existing session.

Newer versions of xorg do not utilize a xorg.conf file by default. See here: If you do need to create one, you can start with:
Xorg -configure
Does this help with your VNC server issue:

Ooh I remember reading that somewhere and it said to not have an xserver running, this was a while ago and I could not figure out how to run CentOS without an xserver so I remember I post poned fixing that but now I remember.
