Automatically redirect Joomla folder to the root.

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>

Two questions:

1. Does www.mydomain.com work? (access directly via browser)
2. What you want is to redirect request to www.mydomain.com/customers to www.mydomain.com?

If both are yes, then this is your solution http://www.isitebuild.com/301-redirect.htm

Another simple way is creating a php file as you said.

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

btw, if there's no index file for www.mydomain.com then your web server might give you permission error
