mod_alias is an Apache module for mapping different parts of the host filesystem in the document tree, and URL redirection.
The directives contained in this module allow for manipulation and control of URLs as requests arrive at the server. The Alias and ScriptAlias directives are used to map between URLs and filesystem paths. This allows for content which is not directly under the DocumentRoot to be served as part of the web document tree. The ScriptAlias directive has the additional effect of marking the target directory as containing only CGI scripts.
The Redirect directives are used to instruct clients to make a new request with a different URL. They are often used when a resource has moved to a new location.
A more powerful and flexible set of directives for manipulating URLs is contained in the mod_rewrite module.
