Rewrite rule question for subdomain

Posted on 2008-06-18

Last Modified: 2010-03-04

For my domain www.1cyu.com, I created a subdomain from the control panel of my provider. BNow I have www.cnn-news.1cyu.com redirected to www.1cyu.com/cnn-news

I would like the url displayed in the browser to be www.cnn-news.1cys.com
It is still displayed www.1cyu/cnn-news/index.php when I type www.cnn-news.1cyu.com

I am trying the following rewrite rule without luck.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?1cyu\.com
RewriteRule ^/cnn-news/?(.*) http://cnn-news.1cyu.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Ask your provider if there is an A record for "cnn-news.1cyu.com" in the zone file. There should be a separate A record for your above subdomain like below:

1cyu.com                      IN A      
cnn-news.1cyu.com      IN A

You are trying to fix things on www.1cyu.com site which is in my opinion wrong.

You should first (and only) fix the www.cnn-news.1cyu.com site that it won't redirect to www.1cyu.com. Contact your provider on how to do that - it seems that what you configured now is not correct. Without knowing your configuration interface at the provider we can't help much other than general guidelines.

It seems that you configured the domain www.cnn-news.1cyu.com to redirect to www.1cyu.com/cnn-news. This is wrong. You should have configured a new web site that points to the same folder on the disk or create a server alias which would result in an address of www.cnn-news.1cyu.com/cnn-news

Thanks to pointing to my mistake.

The config interface is Confixx Pro, in which I defined this:

1cys.com    --->   /   (root dir)
www.1cys.com ---->  / (root dir)
www.cnn-news.1cys.com ---> www.cnn-news.1cyu.com/cnn-news (WRONG)

I suppose the first two are ok, and that I don't need any rewrite rule. Cool!
I corrected the third entry to
www.cnn-news.1cys.com ---> /cnn-news
and it works fine. Thank you very much for your help..
