type IP address on browser

Dear Experts,

I got one free domain name from no-ip.com and it will redirect to
one my IP address, for example,212.1.188.68 which is on my  linux apache server.
When I type the IP, 212.1.188.68 on my Chrome browser , it will echo one error page about 403 http error
I just want to know where is http://212.1.188.68/index.html file located on my server.
In other words, what the really first location it will go on my server when I hit the IP
on browser

I have checked /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html and
/etc/httpd/httpd.conf from which I could NOT find the corresponding page
matched to echo error output on my browser.

Note: My domain name is refered to other IP  NOT  212.1.188.68 and I have
two dedicated IP. when I access SSH shell, and type hostname -i command, it will
show 212.1.188.68 IP address


Please advise

In shell run
updatedb

then run
locate httpd.conf

This will list the location of the file, open it and search the file for documentroot, this will give you your web root
Also look for
<Directory
as the document root maybe different if you have the virtual hosts set up.

it could be in /var/www/html or it could be in your user home directory.

Try one of these for a list of index.html files:
whereis index.html
locate index.html
find / -name 'index.html'

Open in new window

Dear hanknight,
there is too many index.php or index.html from those command you suggest . It might not be good way to do it

Be Reminded. I have used Cpanel before but not now since it is expired , and
the Cpanel is still saved on my server (linux Centos6.5)

I could not find documentroot related to the IP in httpd.conf

So now I add the virtualhost  for such IP in httpd.conf to
redirect to other location  in order to solve the issue temporaily

Thanks for your reply and have a nice day
