no, it's not allowed by apache. read
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/core.html.en#documentroot

DocumentRoot directive must point to directory.
You can try to make
DocumentRoot /www/domain/htdocs
and place mypdf.pdf into that directory. In case you enabled Indexes option
for this directory, user will be able to download and see pdf document under
http://mysite.com/

| http://mysite.com/mypdf.pdf
| and i want it accessible:
| http://mysite.com/myguide/
| I know it will require adobe plugin for the user...
| If not, is there some way of doing it?
| Thanks
