Smile I can't find the CGI-BIN directory and http.conf file is blank

Hello my friends:
I have installed Apache2 on My Ubuntu 7.04 distribution, but i am having a little problem, I can't find the httpd.conf file and cgi-bin directory can't be located.
When i check the /var/www/ directory i don't see the cgi-bin dir, and my http.conf exists but it is blank.
There is an apache2.conf file and it has what i think is the httpd.conf content, but i am not sure if it's the right content.
I have reinstalled Apache2 three times but it's always the same.
Can you please help me to know what is missing???

First, let's find your config files. Try this command as root:
find / -name "httpd.conf" -print

This will tell you where all of your httpd.conf files are located. I suspect that you might have multiple versions of apache installed, but I could be wrong.

Once you find a good httpd.conf, we should be able to trace where your cgi-bin directory is located at.
