ok based on the gndo sugestion I tried again changing the Vhost poiting it the DocumentRoot to /var/www/html/myfolder . Then i made a .htaccess with

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^mysite/.*$ - [PT]

and worked like a charm! the only thing left is that i have to write the full example.com/mysite/ in the first time. can any one help how to only write example.com/ and show example.com/mysite/ in the fist time? Can anyone help me how to only write the domain
