Aliases are a way of mapping an incoming request from one location
to another. An alias can change the document, directory, or even
server of a requested URL. Aliases are also used to indicate which
file system a particular URL should be served out of.

place of the alias. The alias must match the user's URL from the
beginning. If the alias matches a string in the middle of the URL,
no substitution is performed.
