command line – How to create a folder path alias in an instance of ubuntu EC2?

ubuntu 18.04 on AWS

I followed an answer in stackoverflow to create a route alias:

nano ~ / .bashrc

alias myfolder = & # 39; / home / xxx / pms & # 39;

When I try to CD

cd myfolder

I get:

No such file or directory

But if I use the road it works.

I'm not sure what the problem is here.
