Document root must be a directory RHEL6

Respected Members,

I am a newbie to linux. Preparing for my RHCSA exam. I have an error in apache conf which I am unable to solve it. If any member gives me any suggestion regarding this, it will be a great help.

Okay so here is the task which I am trying to perform:
******* YUM Server With HTTP *****

I have copied the whole RHEL6 dvd into my desktop in a directory called “rhelrepo”. After that created a database with “createrepo” inside “Packages” folder. Modified httpd server config file with Alias “/repo” pointed towards the directory “/home/admin/Desktop/rhelrepo”.

Created directory

order allow,deny
allow from all
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

Disabled selinux, firewall. Restarted the httpd service, it is not accessible. After that I changed the Document root to the appropriate folder /home/admin/Desktop/rhelrepo , it says that “Document Root Must Be A Directory”.

I am struggling to find the solutions for this. I have applied the solutions which is provided in this forum but still no luck. Will appreciate any help from the members
