[Pmwiki-users] AliasMatch and virtual hosts

A while back I asked how I could use 'http://wiki.lyx.org' rather than 
'http://wiki.lyx.org/pmwiki.php', and got the advice to add the following 
line to Apache's configuration-file:

	AliasMatch ^/([A-Z].*) /file/path/to/pmwiki.php/$1

Now I've finally gotten access to the machine where the server runs (but 
only read access to Apache), so I've discovered that the configuration 
file is actually stored in a separate file:


that looks like this:

<VirtualHost *>
	ServerAdmin wiki at lyx.org
	DocumentRoot /home/lyx/www/pmwiki
	ServerName wiki.lyx.org:80
	ErrorLog logs/wiki-error_log
	CustomLog logs/wiki-access_log common
	AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
	DirectoryIndex pmwiki.php
	<Directory "/home/lyx/www/pmwiki">
		AcceptPathInfo on
		Options ExecCGI
		AllowOverride None
		Order allow,deny
		Allow from all

Does anyone know if it's possible to add an 'AliasMatch' to this file 
instead? And if so, should the line look like this?

	AliasMatch ^/([A-Z].*) /home/lyx/www/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/$1

or like this?

        AliasMatch ^/([A-Z].*) /pmwiki.php/$1
