 Alias directive works fine both in server config and
 Virtualhost context.
 May be you have some problem with the Virtualhost.
 check for the DNS entry for your virtualhosts.

 Hi!  I'm trying to use the Apache Alias directive to
 create aliases for directories.  I've tried this on
 Apache 1.3.6 and 1.3.9 with the same results. 
 Basically, I have some VirtualHosts defined and in
 each <VirtualHost> section, I want to define some
 aliases for directories.  I specify the Alias
 directive like this:
 ServerName www1.mynet.com
 Alias /docs "/mnt/lan3/dir/docs"
 DocumentRoot "/mnt/lan1/dir"
 ServerName www2.mynet.com
 DocumentRoot "/mnt/lan2/dir"
 The above is correct syntax, but it does not give the
 desired results. When I move the Alias directive
 outside (and before) the VirtualHost definitions, it
 works as I want it to work.  Now, according to the
 Apache doc, the Alias directive applies to "server"
 and "virtual host" context.
 Does anyone know why the Alias directive doesn't work
 properly when defined *only* in the VirtualHost
 Thanks in advance for your time!
 Try browsing the "http://www1.mynet.com/docs" URL with
 the VirtualHost config in the Full Description section
 Update the documentation on how to properly use the
 Alias directive with VirtualHost stanzas if this
 problem is actually a configuration problem.
