How do I redirect all requests for a specific subdirectory to a new domain in Apache?

I purchased a new domain name and in the terms of the purchase, once I take possession of the domain, I need to redirect all traffic to a subdirectory path to the sellers primary domain and preserve the path.

This is only temporary for me while we prep our current site to use the new domain, so I also want all other traffic to this new domain to redirect to my current domains root.

I basically want to fork the traffic to two different domains temporarily.

I'm running Apache 2.2 with mod_rewrite enabled and this will be a virtual directory.

For example, I bought www.mynewdomain.com. I will configure a virtual directory to handle this URL.

1. Redirect some traffic to their domain.


2. Redirect all remaining requests to the root of my current domain.


Any traffic not matching the path specified in the first step should just be redirected to http://www.mycurrentdomain.com

Possible? If so, what would the mod_rewrite look like? I've searched for examples, but haven't found a good match for these conditions yet.

I would look at the mod_rewrite module for apache
the guide has a section "Move Homedirs to Different Webserver" that looks like it could be ammended to suit your needs.

That is my question... not a solution. I'm looking for how to structure mod_rewrite in my http config file to handle these specific conditions.

Hi

The following should do what you ask, just stick the rule in either your new Domains virtual Host definition in the httpd.conf or in your root .htaccess file:

{code}
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule  /?store/all.products/products(.*)$   http://www.theirprimarydomain.com/store/all.products/products$1  [R=307,L]
{code}
