Apache 2.0 search for index.html file

I have recently installed Apache 2.0 and can not find the index.html file that displays the Apache Test Page.

I have searched through the /usr/www/manual directory which contained the index.html.en, and the other foreign language files, but not index.html.

I have also used the find command and through the process of elimination changed a few index.html files located in a different directories and added .old to those files, but still not able to find the correct Apache Test Page.

Can someone please let me know what directory contains the index.html file?

Check your httpd.conf file as it should tell you where the default root path is.

Usually there will be many default pages, could be the index.html.en page that your seeing and you'll need to replace.

I did check the documentroot in the httpd.conf file, which is set at the default of /var/www/html , but there is no index.html file.

Am I looking at the wrong line in the httpd.conf file and is the usually default settings?
