Hi all,

I am moving part of my site to a new domain, and wondered if there was a way to automatically generate 301 responses using htaccess based on the requested URL

For example, I want an htaccesss in the /products folder so that when someone tries to get to http://www.domain.com/products/car.html they are redirected to www.newdom.com/car.html

Is that possible?

Thanks

well you can get the pattern and write a rewrite rule for every pattern. for example for each folder you can write the redirects as below:

RedirectMatch 301 (.*)\/product\/(\w+)$ http://www.newdomain.com/$1

for httpd.conf based redirects please refer the below

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

oops sorry.. my mistake. inside .htaccess you need not to mention the folder name :)

RedirectMatch 301 ^/(.*) http://www.thewebgoodies.com/$1

here put this inside .htacess file in the folder and change the domain name to the desired one. hope this helps

remember everything at this point and below will be forwarded. if you want more restrictions then you should create it as redirect rules by getting the uri first.
