On Ubuntu 13.04 the original WWW was in /var/www/ then I installed NginX and it installed correctly but I can't find the actual folder accessible by http (I looked in /etc/nginx/). I searched for index.htm, index.html and index.php but there are hundreds of results.

Is there a command I can run to tell me what folder http is pointed to? I tried searching for this but I am not sure what keywords to use .

On ubuntu if you installed with apt-get it is /usr/share/ngnix/www

If you run

dpkg -L nginx

you should see where it put any files.
