I want to redirect anything from http://www.oldsite.com/ANYTHING to home page for new site of http://www.newsite.com/

What are the Rewrite commands?

Where do I put it in the httpd.conf file. Do I still need the virtual host set up for oldsite.com?

Hi!

Here is the syntax (mod_rewrite):

RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ http://www.newsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

You can place this inside the appropriate <directory> directives. I'm pretty sure it also works inside the <VirtualHost> directive ...

For example:

<Directory "/var/www/html">
 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ http://www.newsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]
</Directory>

Yes, you would still need to keep the vhost ...
