get rid of the tilde in a web account that is not located in the apache root directory.

  Alias /students  /home/students/www/


  <Directory /home/*/www/>

  AllowOverride None

  Order allow,deny

  Allow from all



  Now I can actually access the web accout as instead of



  However, I realized that with this solution is not as general as I wish. I have more than
100 accounts, and I do not think it would be very efficient to write an alias for each individual
