Yes, using Alias is much simpler -- this is the way I normally
set up servers whenever I can.  Unfortunately, most web hosting 
environments don't give you the ability to define your own aliases
this way.

The file can be named anything you want as long as it ends in .php.
I've always used

   Alias /wiki "/path/to/wiki/pmwiki.php"

myself, so that I don't have to remember to copy/rename pmwiki.php to
index.php when I do an upgrade.
