I am using the server admin tool for the web and see where I can create sites with the +. I thought that was creating virtual directory but it doesn't seem to be. I need a site that uses port 80 but is like http://myserver/myvirtual instead of http://myserver which is what this one with the + does.

how do I make a virtual directory with the tool like in IIS?

Thank you.

edit: how can I put a bounty on this?

What is "the server admin tool for the web"? I can think of several webbased Apache configuration tools. – Quentin Apr 12 '10 at 5:25
Are talking about adding a virtual directory that is outside of the website's folder? – tegbains May 29 '10 at 6:30

I've no idea what tool you are talking about, but you can create a new config file:


And add an alias directive:

alias /myvirtual /Users/bob/myvirtual

(Then restart the web server)
