           href="../mod/core.html#servername">ServerName</a> directive
           to the config file to tell it what the domain name of the
           server is.</p>

  +        <p>The other thing that can occasionally cause this symptom is a
  +        misunderstanding of the <a
  +        href="../mod/mod_alias.html#alias">Alias</a> directive,
  +        resulting in an alias working with a trailing slash, and not 
  +        without one. The <code>Alias</code> directive is very literal,
  +        and aliases what you tell it to. Consider the following
  +        example:</p>
  +
  +        <pre>
  +        Alias /example/ /home/www/example/
  +        </pre>
  +
  +        <p>The above directive creates an alias for URLs starting with
  +        <code>/example/</code>, but does <em>not</em> alias URLs
  +        starting with <code>/example</code>. That is to say, a URL such
  +        as <code>http://servername.com/example/</code> will get the
  +        desired content, but a URL such as
  +        <code>http://servername.com/example</code> will result in a
  +        "file not found" error.</p>
  +
  +        <p>The following <code>Alias</code>, on the other hand, will
  +        work for both cases:</p>
  +
  +        <pre>
  +        Alias /example /home/www/example
  +        </pre>
