I'm trying to configure apache to where if the client makes a request to my IP address they are redirected to my hostname and away from the IP. This is what I've tried that doesn't work:

  RewriteEngine on
  RewriteRule ^my.ip.here/(.*) http://www.myurl.com/ [L,R=301]

What's the best practice to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Thanks,
Dan

What you want is here:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewritecond

Specifically, the HTTP_HOST variable:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.myurl.com$
RewriteRule /?(.+) http://www.myurl.com/$1 [R]
