It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

Obviously that's WAY too much text for you to actually read, but if you got around to it, you'd notice that it's actually a set of instructions telling you exactly what do. – tylerl Apr 6 '10 at 5:59

Have a look what it says on the right-hand column:

You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/... follow the instructions in the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf

I suggest you heed its advice

@Farseeker there is no such folder /var/www/html/ as my server is ubuntu.... When i used ftp client and my user name and password there is htdocs folder and there my files are hosted... – Oscar Apr 6 '10 at 5:29
If that's the case, then I would suspect that your DNS entry for your domain name is incorrect, and you're actually looking at completely the wrong server. If you're running Ubuntu, but you're seeing the RHEL welcome page, and the folders don't exist, then it's higly plausible that the request isn't even getting to your server. – Mark Henderson Apr 6 '10 at 7:37

As the error states in the right hand column there is no content in the /var/www/html directory. The web server will display this page as long as you don't replace it from the /var/www/html directory.

This is the document root or the point where your website is hosted. If you this isn't on your computer, contact the site admin to put up content or wait :)

Didn't see your answer while I was replying @Farseeker. @Pandiya, are you looking at the contents of the same /var/www/html that you are trying to access through the browser? If your local machine is ubuntu and you are trying to access the same machine through browser, it shouldn't be displaying a redhat error page...unless there is some redirection happening. – Knight Samar Apr 6 '10 at 5:37
my local system is windows xp... And my website is hosted in an ubuntu server... – Oscar Apr 6 '10 at 5:40
If your website is hosted on an ubuntu server and you have contents in your document root up there, maybe some weird redirection is happening. Check the contents of the files in your document root or ask the sysadmin at the server to check Apache configuration. – Knight Samar Apr 6 '10 at 5:58
definitely ll do that... – Oscar Apr 6 '10 at 6:06
