If you are using LAMPP (from www.apachefriends.org) and you followed their
installation instructions (tar xzvf lampp.tgz -C /opt), your httpd.conf is
at /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf.

The DocumentRoot will point to the directory you should have your html
files. By default, this would be /opt/lampp/htdocs.

The php.ini configuration file is also in /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini

You can use /opt/lampp/lampp [directive] to start/stop/change from PHP4 to
PHP5, startssl/stopssl (to start/stop providing https support). For more
info, run "/opt/lampp/lampp" with no arguments and it will show you the

Lampp also includes a PROftpd. The username is nobody and the password is
lampp, and if I am not mistaken, this account points to /opt/lampp/htdocs by
default. Configuration file is also in /opt/lampp/etc.

Make sure to save the default htdocs or move it under a subdirectory. It has
acess to phpMyAdmin, which will give you a GUI interface to the MySQL dbs
you create using Lampp. It also has a call to phpinfo() and you can choose
what language you want for their interface among other goodies.

Hope this helps,
