there is nothing you have to do to the conf file to get a favicon to work
here is the way to do it

Creating a favicon

A favicon should be 16 X 16 pixels with 16 colors and the file name should
be favicon.ico. IconEdit32 is a good freeware program that allows you to
create favicons as well as icons of other sizes and color depths. IrfanView
is an excellent freeware image viewer that supports the icon (.ico) image
format. You can use it to shrink one of your regular images to a 16 X 16
size, then decrease the colors to 16 and save as a ".ico" file. If you don't
save it as "favicon.ico," it won't work. Also, don't just shrink an image to
icon size and rename it with a ".ico" file extension. That won't work either
because it's not a real icon file. If you don't want to download a program
to make a favicon, Favicon UK has a nifty free, online icon generator that
allows you to make your own favicon and have it e-mailed to you.
Installing a favicon on your website

Simply upload the file, favicon.ico to the root web directory of your hosted
website
