Apache httpd.conf file sections. How is this file divided into sections?

How is the httpd.conf file broken up?

By looking at examples, I cannot tell where in an httpd.conf file one section starts and another starts.  I understand that the global section is different from other sections.  The global section can be the place to have some settings.  I believe there are distinct sections.  Are these sections discrete and marked in the file?

Is a container merely everything from the beginning of a word in <> to its closing tag?  Would this be a container?
<Directory>  various info </Directory>

Open in new window

?  

Is a directive an assignment?  Do Apache directives in httpd.conf files go into containers necessarily?

This page http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/configuring.html describes the 'httpd.conf' file.  "httpd configuration files contain one directive per line."  Apache calls things like <Directory>  various info </Directory> sections.  And there are a lot of thing that do not go in sections like that but are individual directives that apply to the whole server or just some special function.

Apache can be a little complicated.  It would help to read through that page and then some of the links there for more info.

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?
