Hi experts,

Here is a simple .htaccess question


My goal is to redirect presidentevil.fr to www.presidentevil.fr

I use that:

SetEnv PHP_VER 5
RewriteEngine on
Rewritecond %{HTTP_HOST} ^presidentevil.fr$
Rewriterule ^(.*) http://www.presidentevil.fr/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

It seems the htaccess is active because If I remove
SetEnv PHP_VER 5
I got php errors.

Troubles is : when I type in presidentevil.fr it does not redirect to www. !
What am I doing wrong ?

I'm no expert at .htaccess, but check out the generator at http://www.htaccessredirect.net/index.php Looks like the syntax is a little off.
