Depends on where the directory in question is located.

Simple way, copy the directory to the DocumentRoot of Apache:
cp -R yourdirectory /var/www/htdocs or wherever your web files are served.

Make a symlink in DocumentRoot to the directory in question. The best way I would say.

cd to the DocumentRoot
ln -s /path/to/your/dir a-directory-name
