Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to add a ServerAlias pointing to a url say "www.example.com/somthing/more". I know this is perfectly possible in case of "www.example.com" or "*.example.com" for eg.

Server[Name|Alias] accepts hostnames only.

To go beyond hostnames, you need to look into <Location>, Alias, Rewrite directives or the like.

If you had foo.example.com and wanted to redirect to http://bar.example.com/directory, then you could do something like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName foo.example.com
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule .* http://bar.example.com/directory [R=301,L]
