Question How to change the path of my index.html website?

Hi guys, I installed a LAMP server here at work the other day. I'm using Ubuntu. I just installed a CMS and everything is running fine. The question is how do I tell Apache not to look for the index.html /var/www and to look for it in this path:

As you can see I installed the Jupiter CMS here at work they wanted something like this for posting messages in our Intranet.

Thanks for the help....

I'm sorry Baix, I'm a newbie, this is what I have in the httpd.conf:

root@UbuntuLinux:/etc/apache2# vi httpd.conf
# This is here for backwards compatability reasons and to support
# installing 3rd party modules directly via apxs2, rather than
# through the /etc/apache2/mods-{available,enabled} mechanism.
#LoadModule mod_placeholder /usr/lib/apache2/modules/

What do I need to change in this file???
Thanks for your help
