i don't think you'd add a DocumentRoot.  If you did, you wouldn't
create an Alias for a directory underneath it.

I expected you'd identify where you want to serve your content from,
and where it lives in your filesystem, with an Alias directive. You
also usually need a <Directory> to actually allow Apache to serve from
that directory.

This is only half of a question.
