Apache 2 folder url direction

I have apache2 installed and in my config I have the following.


<VirtualHost *:80>
   DocumentRoot "/home/abcx/public_html/uploads/"
   ServerName www.abc.com
   ServerAlias abc.com
</VirtualHost>


I want to point instead of www. I want to use uploads.abc.com  When I do this it points to the default install of the apache which is in /var/www/ and not point the site to the document root above.

What do I have to do to use the uploads.abc.com and point to the document root above?

You can list multiple ServerAlias names, e.g.
  ServerAlias abc.com uploads.abc.com
