Why don't I have a httpd.conf file in /etc/apache2?

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Ubuntu seems to come with Apache2 but in the apache2 folder there no httpd.conf?

Why is the file lacking and what do I have to do to create it?

Per https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/httpd.html all configuration options have all been moved to subdirectories.

httpd.conf: historically the main Apache2 configuration file, named
after the httpd daemon. Now the file does not exist. In older
versions of Ubuntu the file might be present, but empty, as all
configuration options have been moved to the below referenced

Check the reference link for the name and description of each subdirectory.

  • apache2.conf: the main Apache2 configuration file. Contains settings
    that are global to Apache2.
