Publication alias for subfolder install

    Hi devs,

    Following a request to document subfolder installs, I have set up an
    Apache DocumentRoot of /var/www/ and a ServerName of
    newscoop.64studio.com and have installed Newscoop 3.5.3 into
    /var/www/newscoop/

    I can now see the site at http://newscoop.64studio.com/newscoop/ on the
    localhost. This works fine when using a Publication Alias of
    newscoop.64studio.com (a local URL in my /etc/hosts file). My Apache
    config is attached.

    After reading the solution to http://dev.sourcefabric.org/browse/CS-2970
    I was expecting to have to use a Publication Alias of:

    newscoop.64studio.com/newscoop/

    but in fact, this does not work, I get the 'not assigned to a
    publication' error.

    So is it true that the Newscoop Publication Alias should match the
    Apache ServerName, regardless of any subfolder installation?

    Cheers!

    Daniel
