According the Apple 1 of the 300 new features is the ability to search system files via spotlight. OK...I'm a recent switcher and wasn't aware the apache web server was shipped with OS X. After seeing that in this forum, I wanted to find the apache configuration file, httpd.conf. So I type httpd.conf in spotlight and no results are found

Am I missing something? Is this not a system file? How do you long time mac user go about finding these type of files because it doesn't appear finder or spotlight can be used.
