Well, that's up to you.  Wherever you set DocumentRoot in your httpd.conf, 
is where you want your web files.  If you already have web files in a 
specific directory, then set DocumentRoot to that directory.  If you are 
using virtual hosting, then that is set in each <VirtualHost> tag.  I 
prefer using /home/*site*/public_html.
