 Module: mod_alias 

 *Module: mod_alias* .. meta:: 
   :keywords: lighttpd, alias 
 .. contents:: Table of Contents 

 h2. Description 

 The alias module is used to specify a special document-root for a given url-subset. 

 h2. Options 

   rewrites the document-root for a URL-subset 

   Default: empty 

 *Example of usage*: 



   Example: :: 
     alias.url = ( "/cgi-bin/" => "/var/www/servers/" ) 



   You can add additional aliases by:* 

 <pre> by: :: 
     alias.url += ( "/content" => "/var/www/servers/" ) 


 h2. Additional information 


 As trailing slashes are stripped from the url before matching an alias, the alias "/content/ => "/dirtocontent/" will not match the url "/content/"; it matches only something like "/content/somefile" or "/content/somesubdir/". 

 So in most cases you shouldn't use a trailing slash on the left side (but use it on the right side!): "/content" => "/dirtocontent/"  


 Now "/content_x1/" is mapped to "/dirtocontent/_x1", "/content/" -> "/dirtocontent/" and "/content/somefile" -> "/content//somefile" (yes, double slash). 

 If you don't use it on the right side too, "/content_x1/" is mapped to "/dirtocontent_x1", which you probably don't want.
