.htaccess page load different URL

Hi guys,

Wondering if you can shine some light a problem I am having... Something Id like to do...

Id like to have
http://abc.domain1.com.au -> point to -> http://www.domain2.com.au/abc

But I dont want have the URL change, I want it to stay as http://abc.domain1.com.au even though it is loading content from http://www.domain2.com.au/abc. So you would never see: http://www.domain2.com.au/abc or know that it is loading this URL.

Is this possible?

Ive tried playing the dynamic sub domains, DNS settings... and think the possible solution would be use to utilize a .htaccess file... but don't know how to code it...

hope someone can provide some working code to resolve this problem...

Thanks!

Thanks, I've tried... the code...

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} domain2.com
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/abc
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ abc/$1 [L]

but it doesn't seem to want to work..  Can someone please test this for me?
on another domain and let me know how it goes...

Thanks!

there is probably a better way, but what you can do is create vhosts for the subdomains and put a .htaccess in each containing the line
RedirectMatch ^/$ http://www.domain2.com.au/abc

that'll redirect and be transparent to your users.

if both domains are hosted locally you could use
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule   ^/$  /path/to/domain2.com.au/abc
