Apache AliasMatch

This directive is equivalent to Alias, but makes use of regular expressions, instead of simple prefix matching. The supplied regular expression is matched against the URL-path, and if it matches, the server will substitute any parenthesized matches into the given string and use it as a filename. For example, to activate the /icons directory, one might use:

AliasMatch ^/icons(.*) /usr/local/apache/icons$1
