Hi friends...
I am working with Unixware 2.0.1 Apache 1.3.1, PERL.
i have a major web site in my web server.
eg : hierarchy level is
main page --> state--> district--> Area
Once a user visited the perticular Area , in the location the web address as http://maindomain.com/state/district/area.
If he wants to vissit the Area page in next time, he wants to go through the step by step links.. also it is very difficult to remember the  perticular page address. So what i want is i want to give a short cut to this area as
http://maindomain.com/area.  
ie . next time onwards he can directly use this address to reach this area.
for this what configurations i have to do in my apache web server.
whether is it is possible in apache.

i want to give show both them are same pages.

mon1,

  If you are running Apache 1.3.x, edit the file httpd.conf, and add the following

Alias  /area      "path to the area directory"

if "area" is located in /usr/local/apachec/htdocs/states/area then the entry will be

Alias /area "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/states/area"  

and remember to restart the server once you edited the file.

either kill -HUP <pid-of-apache>  or
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart


good luck.
