Finding Apache configuration file (httpd.conf)
Finding Apache configuration file (httpd.conf) Just a quick tip for programmers working with Apache. Sometimes I'm asked where to find the Apache configuration file on a given server. Since it's possible to configure this there is no "default location" so I usually do: $ ps -ef | grep apache which gives me a list like deploy@cmd01:/$ ps -ef | grep apache root 4053 1 0 06:26 ? 00:00:04 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start www 5189 4053 0 11:00 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start www 5199 4053 0 11:00 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ... Then simply run $ /usr/sbin/apache2 -V and you will get the details you need, specifically this Server compiled with.... -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/apache2/apache2.conf"
