The best place to find out is open your httpd.conf and find your DocumentRoot this will tell you where the server looks for its web pages.
Most people place there webpages under /www not /var

wow, talk about the gentoo indoctrined, emerge apache defaults at /var/www ....... i need to try something new... or not... reguardless, that documentroot variable can be set to anywere you want, but for security purposes, you should probably not point it anywhere in /home /etc /lib or /bin.

Most distros use /var/www just easyer to have it on its own partition under /www. Plus i remember reading some where that /var is not for webpages?
