I am following configuring puppet master master server with passenger and apache steps from puppetlabs Documents. i was facing trouble in the step " Create and enable the puppet Master Vhost. In that it is specified to do " cp puppetmaster.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/"

but i dont find puppetmaster.conf anyhwere in my setup. i am assuming it to be puppet.conf. Is my assumption correct? After copying puppet.conf to /etc/httpd/conf.d/ and tried to restart httpld service it failed.

Can someone help me out to fix this? If my assumption is wrong which file should i copy to /etc/httpd/conf.d/?

You definitely don't want to copy puppet.conf to the Apache configuration directory. Puppet.conf is used to configure the Puppet components and is not an Apache config file.

The contents of puppetmaster.conf (an Apache config file) are given on the documentation page that you're looking at. Copy the directives from the page and paste them into a file named puppetmaster.conf, place that file in the Apache configuration directory, and you should be all set.

The Apache config file contents are located slightly below this section of the page:
