I’ve also been creating symlinks to my user’s public_html folder, a symlink is kindof a shortcut or virtual directory equivilent in windows/iis. The following command line code is used for creating symlinks:

ln -s /home/your_user_name/public_html/folder /srv/www/htdocs/folder" 

This creates a shortcut from the Apache htdocs to the users personal html docs.
