You can change this in one of two places.

The first is globally.
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
# DocumentRoot "C:/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs"

DocumentRoot "D:/php"
Or you can set up a virtual host configuration and map the directory to a specific domain or IP address.

    ServerName localhost
    ServerAlias domain.tld *.domain.tld
    DocumentRoot D:/www
