If you installed a recent version of apache for Unix (1.3.0 or later) and kept the default file locations, srm.conf is in the directory /usr/local/apache/conf/

Older versions of apache have a default location of /usr/local/etc/httpd/conf/

The windows apache prefers to stick .conf files in c:\program fles\apache group\apache\conf\

I'm afraid it's in none of those locations. I have S.u.S.E Linux 5.2.0-5 and the version of Apache that came with it. The directory /usr/local/apache/ doesn't exist. The directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/ does but the only subdirectories are cgi-bin, htdocs and icons.

Ah, I see... then SUSE has modified their installation of Apache from the defaults. In that case you can try 'man apache' ... often Linux distributions will customize man pages and list their chosen file locations, or if all else fails there is always the find command:

find / -name srm.conf -print

.but the above will slow your system while it runs.

It's also possible that SUSE has further customized their version of Apache to not have an srm.conf (it's possible to combine httpd.conf, access.conf and srm.conf into one big httpd.conf). So if you find only an httpd.conf on your system, look inside it for commands like AddIcon or DefaultType which are traditionally found in the srm.conf
