I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

By dedault the document root is located under  /var/www/html for RedHat servers. If you want to see the actual location you can query the contents of your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file for DocumentRoot variable. such as:


[root@xxxx ~]# grep DoscumentRoot /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf 

Open in new window


The output should be something similar to this:

# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.

Open in new window


Cheers,
K.

That depends on how the web server is set up.  The Virtual Hosts settings can place the web files almost anywhere and if you have user directory hosting enabled, then each user under /home could have their own web site, usually in /home/~user/public_html .  Some more info here:  http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/3/html/System_Administration_Guide/s1-httpd-virtualhosts-settings.html
