Hi george,

Basically, you only need to modify httpd.conf and
commonhttpd.conf located at /etc/httpd/conf: With your
favorite text editor just make sure you get this or
add it:

To /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

ServerType standalone
ServerRoot /etc/httpd/2.0
DocumentRoot /whereyou/got/yoursite/files (usually

To /etc/httpd/conf/commonhttpd.conf 

User apache (or whatever user you like to run apache
under, customary apache)

Group apache (or whatever group you like to run apache
under, customary apache)

ServerAdmin (this is for people to know
whats the webmaster´s mail)

There´s a section that looks like this:

#  This should be changed to whatever you set
DocumentRoot to
<Directory /var/www/yoursitefiles>

I think that´s it, but i should warn you that this is
the very basic configuration but for making it work
its ok.

Hope it works.
