I successfully installed the apache webserver on my local machine. and when I go to the address:
http://localhost/
I get a page that shows the installation was successful and it says:
If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.

My problem is, I have no idea where the directory for "This" is. So I can't replace the page or add anything.

I figured this one out myself guys. If anyone needs to know it was in the directory specified by the DocumentRoot property and in my case the location was:
C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs
For some reason I had to use an index file with a .html extension because .htm didn't work.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
