Thanks. It appears that te full path is /usr/sbin/apache2 and the
config file is /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

I have googled nothing that showed a config file that is not called
httpd.conf but as the executable is called apache2 and not httpd, then
I guess it may follow that so is also called the config file. I
installed via apt-get in Kubuntu, that may account or the unusual

Thank you.
