Oh hey I figured it out. You can't drag it from your desktop back to the etc folder. Instead you have to go to the terminal and type:
sudo cp ~/Desktop/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/httpd.conf

I got this from Swanilda:

Don't know if it works but it makes total sense. I will try it now.

    I'm having pretty much the same problem. I opened httpd.conf in TextEdit because Terminal gave me an error when I tried BBEdit. Of course I realized I couldn't save it in the httpd directory, but instead of being a little more brilliant and saving it to the desktop, I tried using sudo pico /etc/httpd/httpd.conf in Terminal. I made the changes and then I couldn't restart Apache. Then I tried using the above advice, but with the backup file of httpd.conf that I had made. Unfortunately, that didn't work. I really hope people are still checking this because this is a time-sensitive question. Any ideas?
