I am running an Apache server with Aliases to "www" folders in user directories. If I go to "domain/~user" I get a 404, but "domain/~user/" is served correctly. I am assuming this is because there is no file called "~user" but there is a directory. I would like to be able to go to "~user" and have it go to the folder "~user".

You should enable mod_dir, and make sure that DirectorySlash directive is not disabled.
