To fix install mlocate

yum install mlocate

Now when i run

[email protected] [~]# locate httpd.conf
locate: can not open `/var/lib/mlocate/mlocate.db': No such file or directory
[email protected] [~]#

This is because, locate only searches through a static index of files. You need to generate index by running

updatedb

To keep the database uptodate, you should add a cron to update this daily

0 0 * * * updatedb
