I didn't understand the impact on virtual servers, but how
did you configure your /alia/ directory? Is it an alias to
/usr/local/www/alia/ and same as document root? Or did you
use a Redirect statement? If /alia/ is outdated (you wrote
"historical") you should use Redirect. Robots will recognize
and detect already spidered pages. The same problem with
ht://dig will occur with any other searchengine, e.g.
AltaVista or Excite.

So long
