    I have the same question. I can read the httpd.conf file, but I can't change it. The reply to the previous post did not address the issue. Any more ideas?

    You may found the answer to your question, But I ma reading through this thread and found your question.

    You will not find any file located at /etc/htmld using Spotlight

    find the file

    1. Open terminal from <Application><Utilities>
    2. This will open a command window on your desktop
    3. At the prompt type httpd -V
    you should see a report

    NOTE : this report will tell you that with MAC OSX
    the file you are looking for is located at
    -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/httpd/httpd.conf"
    3. use this command at the command line prompt
    cd /etc/httpd
    4. this will switch you to the directory/folder
    named /etc/httpd the configuration file is located in this file - folder path

    If you have not received an answer yet I hope this will be of any use for you
