I am making the assumption that you are not versed in Apache.
the current apache server software uses only the httpd.conf file. Older
versions have three files: srm.conf, access.conf and httpd.conf.
I run apache 1.3.14 and it still has the three files broken out, so I am
assuming that is how yours is.
Either way, the directive is in the httpd.conf file
edit this files and look for a line something like this:
# Aliases: Add here as many aliases as you need (with no limit). The
# Alias fakename realname
The directive below allows you to alias the directories, in mine I have
this for pipermail
Alias /pipermail/ /opt/mailman/archives/public/
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
Allow from all
The directory directive defines how the access to the directory. Look at
the manual for a more indepth explaination.
Below this you should also find a ScriptAlias directive. This is how you
alias your script directory
Mine looks like this:
ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/opt/mailman/cgi-bin/"
Allow from all
If you have any more questions let me know
