Set Up Private Web Section

    I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on the best way to configure a server running Plesk to have a private "localhost" only web section. I don't want to create a domain name to link to it or want it to be accessible anywhere outside localhost.

    I'm installing a few web-based tools that are for my own use. However, I still have a poor understanding of some of the inner workings of Plesk and how it's all configured for the web.

    I noticed /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf seems to be configured with DocumentRoot /var/www/html and user / group as apache. However, when I use Plesk to create new domains, everything goes under /var/www/vhosts/domain and it runs off of the vhosts.conf files within each domain. Furthermore, the group user is psaserv instead of apache.

    Can someone clarify this a little bit? How does Apache access and serve these pages when the groups are psaserv but Apache is configured as apache? What specifies to the Apache server that sites are organized into /var/www/vhosts and to find those vhosts files (The VirtualHosts section in httpd.conf does not seem to contain this)
