virtual path

<networking> The location of a file or directory on a particular server, as seen by a remote client accessing it via World-Wide Web (or similar distributed document service).

A virtual path provides access to files outside the default directory and subdirectories. It appears in the form ".../~name/..." where "~name" is replaced with actual path configured by the administrator. An access control list can be associated with a virtual path.
