Find httpd.conf file in your Apache web server directory, usually at /usr/local/apache/conf/ . Open the file using any text editor and find:

DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache/htdocs"
and
<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs">

Change both directory to the new webroot

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
and
<Directory "/var/www/html">

Save the httpd.conf file and restart the web server.
