How to make domain point to another web directory?

My boss just bought the domain: for me, and agree'd the host my Wordpress blog on company servers.

We're using Apache (latest version).

The domain is purchased on and the DNS settings are as follows:

enter image description here

And when I visit my URL, it's getting redirected to my VPS server without problems. The thing is, I want my blog to appears at once, not have a user select the folder and then see the blog.

My Wordpress blog is located at: /var/www/

On IIS, you would need to edit the Bindings and map a domain to an application. I'm guessing I have to do something similar on Apache.

What am I looking for here? Any tips on getting this working correctly?

@Serg - sorry but it answers your question exactly. The OP in the other question wants to do exactly the same thing you do. Although I prefer Devin's answer over MikeyB's as Mike's will most likely break your WP installation – Mark Henderson Nov 18 '12 at 20:47
@MarkHenderson: Just tried it following Devin's answer by changing newversion to - please reopen the question so I can get assistance. Thanks! – sergserg Nov 18 '12 at 20:54

you need to update your apache configuration files. Depending how your apache is installed and whether this is the only site on the server; start by looking in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (or /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf) You'll either be changing your overall webroot or adding a vhost.
