Remember that Apache can be set up (and usually is) to allow per-directory
reconfiguration via .htaccess files.

So, instead of having to get root permission, or do a sudo, and edit
/etc/apache/httpd.conf and creating a "<Directory>" section for your
redirect, rule rewrite, alias, authentication, etc., you simply
drop the config options you want into an ".htaccess" file in the dir.

(This is MOST often done[*] for setting up .htaccess/.htpasswd authentication
to password-protect a particular directory heirarchy on the website.)

[*] Or at least explained zillions of times on countless
    "How to make HMTL website on teh intarweb" howto webpages. :^)
