How to Edit Httpd.Conf in Cpanel

By Margaret Worthington

Httpd.conf is an apache configuration file that is created when the Apache web server software is installed on a Linux server. If you are running the cPanel Web-hosting management software on your Web server, you can alter the properties of the httpd.conf file through the cPanel graphical user interface.

Step 1

Log in to WHM/cPanel as the root user.

Step 2

Open the "Service Configuration" section.

Step 3

Open the "Apache Configuration" section.

Step 4

Click "Global Configuration" to access the httpd.conf's settings, as displayed through cPanel.

Step 5

Make your desired changes, then click the "Save" button. This saves the changes and then reboots Apache so that the changes are applied.
