Other Option

There is one option should set when beginning to configure Apache. You should add the e-mail address of the person responsible for the configuration of your server. When certain error occur when a page is request, Apache may inform the browser, with a default error message. Generally this occurs when you have a link to a page which does not exist. The e-mail address of your administrator will be displayed in the error message. You should configure this persons e-mail address with the ServerAdmin option.
 
# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed.

ServerAdmin you@your.address
  By default your access and error log files and the Apache process id live in the .../apache/logs directory. Some operating systems such as BSDI have a central repository of system log files or system process ids. You can control where your log files and the Apache process id are stored with the following directives.  
# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file. If this does not start
# with /, ServerRoot is prepended to it.

ErrorLog logs/error_log

# TransferLog: The location of the transfer log file. If this does not
# start with /, ServerRoot is prepended to it.

TransferLog logs/access_log

# PidFile: The file the server should log its pid to
PidFile logs/httpd.pid
