 Probably /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf is being used, but to be sure you 
could do an "ps aux" to see the httpd process and figure out the path 
from the output (look for something with httpd or apache in the name).
Alternatively, you could look in the /etc/init.d/httpd file to see where 
it is picking up the apache binary from.

Look under /var/www/html for the pages, but to be sure look for 
"DocumentRoot" in your httpd.conf file.
This file is pretty well commented.  Most all basic config. items for 
apache are in this file...start with it.

I haven't used LAMP before, so I can't help much with that.  However, 
PHP, MySQL, and Apache are old friends of mine :-)    .

Hope that helped,
