Don't use /var/www as your docroot. Use a subdirectory. Then you can put 
other files under /var/www that are not under the docroot.

Aside: Avoid editing httpd.conf if you can help it. A lot of customization 
can be accomplished by dropping a custom .conf file in /etc/httpd/conf.d. 
This makes upgrades a lot easier, in case the stock httpd.conf changes.
