I'm not familiar with Apache2Triad (Some packaged thing with PHP and 
MySQL perhaps?).

httpd.conf *should* be perfectly fine the way it is. I've always run 
without the Scoreboard file specified and the pid file does not exist 
unless the server is running, so you shouldn't see it. Have you tried 
running the server?

If you just want to understand the config file you should probably read 
the documentation ( ) thoroughly.
