So what you are saying is you decided to double post?

Hmmmm, I'd have to think that might get you in trouble...

As for an answer, you might check the apache docs:

Or maybe:

If not there, you might hunt around the docs some more, or even perform a search.

And save yourself and the mods a headache and just don't double post anymore.

There are a number of ways to do what you want-

set this in your httpd.conf

DocumentRoot /var/www
change to
DocumentRoot /home/test

or you could add this line to your httpd.conf

Alias / /home/test

(never tried to alias a home dir but it should work If I am wrong please tell me)

I am sure there are other ways as well. If these answers don't help the apache site was always helpful to me- is still the best search engine too

Hope this helps,
