To view other configuration settings open httpd.conf file (usually located in /etc/httpd directory).
Red hat, CentOS and Fedora stores httpd at the following location:
# vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Debian and Ubuntu stores httpd.conf in apache2.conf file at the following location:
# vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
FreeBSD stores apache2.2 configuration at the following location:
# vi /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf
If you made any changes to httpd.conf, check httpd syntax for error using the -t option:
# httpd -t
If there are no errors, simply restart Apache web server.
