Alias =====

Module: mod_alias

Description ===========

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

Options =======

rewrites the document-root for a URL-subset

Default: empty
Example: ::
alias.url = ( "/cgi-bin/" => "/var/www/servers/" )
You can add additional aliases by: ::
alias.url += ( "/content" => "/var/www/servers/" )

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/" BR
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.
