According to, the documentation for apache is in /usr/share/doc/apache2-doc/.

If however, you're refering to the DocumentRoot, the default location is /var/www.

And if for some reason it's not in the default location the config file will tell you where it is. – John Gardeniers Jul 1 '09 at 21:56

/etc/apache2/sites-available will tell tell you what sites are where. Additional software that runs on apache often goes there with a separate file and its own directory.
