It occurs to me, I wonder if there is a way to do this through httpd.conf

i.e. block direct access to www.mydomain.com/admin
and in effect map www.mydomain.com/adminqwerty to www.mydomain.com/admin

i.e. No bounces or redirects - the browser client must actually access 
www.mydomain.com/adminqwerty (with the conversion to /admin being done 
server side by Apache withouth the browser having any knowledge).

Is this possible?
