"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I suggest you the following inclusion in your .htaccess file:
Redirect permanent /test  http://www.mywebsite.com/my_test_page.php

Open in new window

Prefer the following answer:
Redirect permanent ^/test/.*  http://www.mywebsite.com/my_test_page.php

Open in new window

Replace Redirect by RedirectMatch in my previous answer, it should be correct.

Thanks media-tips for your help, it works well with http://www.mywebsite.com/test/ but how can I get it to work with http://www.mywebsite.com/test as well (no slash at the end)?
