Unable to locate httpd.conf containing DocumentRoot

I am a newbie in PHP and have setup CakePHP environment for a project using LAMP on Ubuntu. The images are not getting displayed and I suspect it is got to do something with URL rewriting mentioned here: http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/installation/url-rewriting.html To address this issue, I am trying to locate httpd.conf to make changes to DocumentRoot. The only httpd.conf I could locate was the one in /etc/apache2 which contains a single line 'ServerName localhost'. Can experts suggest where I can look for the actual httpd.conf containing DocumentRoot and other directives. There is one file called 'Default' under /etc/apache2/sites-available which has the Directory directives. But modifying this file did not help.

seems this is /etc/apache2  the right place ..  
so you will need to edit  /etc/apache2/httpd.conf  save it   and then restart apache ( or reboot the server )

Several distributions use 'apache2.conf' instead of 'httpd.conf' for the main configuration file and then a variety of others for 'virtual hosts' and other things.
