1.Login to the server via SSH
2.Open the following file in a text editor: vi /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts.conf
3.Locate the virtual host container for the site in question and add the following:
<Directory "/path/to/document/root/subfolder">
4.Save the file and test the Apache configuration with the following command: /etc/init.d/httpd configtest
5.If you get a "Syntax Ok" response, then run this command to restart Apache: /etc/init.d/httpd restart
