					?The configuration for Apache Linux Server is achieved through the placement of
directives in plain text files, just as it is done with many other Linux-based programs.
The files in the case of Apache Linux Server are known as httpd.conf, srm.conf, and
access.conf.
There are three separate configuration files for a reason. One alternative is to use
httpd.conf as the server-wide configuration, access.conf to set access control for the
server, and srm.conf to control naming and resources. You can tell Apache Linux
Server to look only at it for its configuration by placing the options AccessConfig
/dev/null and ResourceConfig /dev/null in httpd.conf. You can also name directories
httpd.conf, srm.conf, and access.conf, respectively. The Apache Linux Server
automatically sort all subdirectories and files located there into the configuration files
named earlier.

The root directory of the Apache Linux Server differs according to installation options,
but the files are usually located in the /conf subdirectory. If Apache Linux Server is
installed with all the defaults, then the configuration files would be located in
/usr/local/apache/conf.
Apache Linux Server can load its configuration from a user-defined file at run time
due to the -f command- line option. The configuration files are found in /etc/apache in
the latest version of Debian. The configuration files are located under /etc/httpd/conf,
if you are using Red Hat. You know that structure of directory and location of files
might change if you have run more than one version of Linux before. If you have
having doubts, then running locate httpd or locate apache with a database of files
which has been updated can be useful in getting the exact location.
When it comes to configuring the Apache Linux Server, the d irectives are entered into
the configuration files one in each line and are case-sensitive. You will be given a line
number if Apache Linux Server sees a problem with any particular command. There
are many configuration options of the Apache Web Server, just as there is with any
program which has many features. The main configuration files are stored in plain
text files, and the main configuration files are accessible easily through the text editor
you choose.
