10.5.21. DocumentRoot

DocumentRoot is the directory which contains most of the HTML files which are served in response to requests. The default DocumentRoot, for both the non-secure and secure Web servers, is the /var/www/html directory. For example, the server might receive a request for the following document:
http://example.com/foo.html
The server looks for the following file in the default directory:
/var/www/html/foo.html
To change the DocumentRoot so that it is not shared by the secure and the non-secure Web servers, refer to Section 10.8, “Virtual Hosts”.
