Apache is not reading .htaccess files in the destination directories
of an alias.

conf file includes:
ALIAS /CNDAT/ /project/noise/cndat/

Subdirectories of /project/noise/cndat/ have .htaccess files, but Apache
does not parse them.

If I make a symbolic link from my document root directory to /project/noise/cndat/
and name it /CNDAT/ then Apache parses the .htaccess files.

I can't find anything in the documentation which says that ALIASes are
supposed to turn off the .htaccess parsing in the subdirectories.
Sorry, you'll have to try it for yourself. My site is behind a firewall.
