    I tried to use 'locate httpd.conf', but it returned nothing. I guess the command locate hasn't been installed on my centos 5.1. I wonder how to enable it? I tried yum install locate, but not worked.

    Hi dealspiggy,

    first run

    after that you can use "locate".

    Consider using find instead as results from locate cannot be relied upon, they are as good as the last time you ran updatedb

    find / -iname httpd.conf
