Subject [users@httpd] Re: Newbie question re startup page

I don't know how it does it. With Joe's help I found the page 
(index.html.en) and there are a lot of them with different endings for 
different languages!

I found the document right where you told me it was.

I remember looking for the httpd.conf file previously and couldn't find 
it. I used the find function and it came up blank. I also looked for a 
'etc' file and found one buried deep (11 levels) in the System folder. 
All it had in it were GMT? files. I also did a search for the htdocs 
directory and came up blank.

I did find a reference to the httpd.conf file  in another file 
'httpd.html.en' and it indicated it is in a
/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf  directory. I suspect this requires 
the terminal to access, which is further than I intended to go.

I can see changing the 'index.html.en' document to provide a front page 
to links to my various sites, but if a link comes in from Norway, it 
goes to '' instead. If I get rid of all the foreign 
'index.html.??' documents will that automatically cause it to go to the 
index.html document? What problems will arise if I get rid of those
