Just republished my joomla site, and prviously, I had a customer site in www.mydomain.com/customers 
I need to recreate that folder in my site, easy, but how do I create a file that will redirect to www.mydomain.com 
I tried this index.html file but I get a permissions error. If I include the entire \customers\index.html it works.
Do I need to create a .php file to redirect?

<head>

<meta http-equiv="refresh"

content="0;URL=http://www.mydomain.com/">

</head>

Fantastic!

Went for option:
Another simple way is creating a php file as you said.

<?php
header("location: http://www.mydomain.com");
?>

Worked a treat. Thanks De Smile.
