Hello, are you using a shared hosting provider?

Could you explain how do you set up media aliases in the environments where you do not have access to the main webserver configs - so that the webserver handles the static files directly?

How does this work in your particular example and which host do you use?

My little experience with hosting services:

On webfactional you have to set up a static app(oficial documentation)

Mediatemple virtual host give you full control on the apache configuration, but the trick to media files is to put a symlink on the httpdocs folder of the app.
