The new apache2 came with a lot of changes. Almost every thing was changed from the location of the files to their names too. So if you go looking for the previous config files you won’t find them.
So if you want to change the DocumentRoot in apache2 you will not find the setting under httpd.conf. To chance the DocumentRoot of the apache2 server follow the steps:
STEP1: First you need to make the directory to which you want to change the DocumentRoot to. Preferably make this directory in your home folder so that you have all the permissions to edit the files that are kept in the folder. So issue the command
STEP2: To change the DocumentRoot you would need to edit the file default file placed in /etc/apache2/sites-available . So issue the command
sudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default
In this file you would see something like
Change it to
On line 9 you would see something like this
Change it to
STEP3: Save the file. Go to the terminal and issue the command
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
And its done. Now place any of your file in the folder you made and you would be able to see the file by going to http://localhost/
IF you have any queries regarding the process feel free to leave a comment.
