How do I create an directory alias for use on my website?

I’m brand new to DO and linux and I’ve been looking for a while and still am not able to sort this out.

I need to create a virtual directory/shortcut/alias etc to use on the website so that points at the resources at /var/www/html/ifiles.

Thanks for the noob help in advance.

Thanks for the input but I was asking the wrong question. I did need an alias but for apache. A little more digging and I was able to get that working.

Thanks again for your time and patence.

In Apache that’d be “Alias /docs /var/www/html/ifiles”
