    hopefully this is an easy one,
    i have a domain 'A', and a domain 'B'
    in the web folder of 'A' is a folder 'c'.
    basically, what i want is when a user types in the url for 'B', the browser takes them to the location http://A/c/ but continues to display the url as 'B'

    is this possible? i've tried various redirect options on an aliasdomain, but they keep changing the displayed url to 'A' or 'A'/'c'. do i need to make it a full website and then use the control panel redirection options?, or redirect it in .htaccess?

    You can create B as a normal vhost, and in custom apache directives set it to proxy to http://A/c/. A good example of a similar reverse proxy setup was posted in the last couple days by @Rein van 't Veer, I forget exactly which forum/post it was in.
