Apache's Index

I loaded RH 8.0 onto my computer, and I enabled my webserver so when I type in my computers IP that I get the Apache's 'Test Page' Now I can't find 'htdocs' where is it? And I don't have a directory in '/home/httpd' and I searched the entire '/var/www' and found nothing... Please help!

Its usually in /var/www but have you looked at your httpd.conf file to find out where the default files reside in.. It should specify where to place your index and other files, plus also you can change this if you want.

Your web files should be in /var/www/html . Put a file called index.html in there and you should see that page when you type in your ip address.
