Add the following to your VirtualHost config for website.com

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?website.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ fr [R=301,L]

Open in new window

The previous answer will result in an infinite loop.  It will also remove the file requested from the new URL.  Try this instead:

RewriteCond  %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/?fr [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /fr/$1

Open in new window

# "little" improved :)
RewriteCond  %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/?fr [NC]
RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /fr/$1 [QSA,L]

@routinet, is your REQUEST_FILENAME a typo? (it differs to REQUEST_URI in rare cases)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@ahoffmann: You are correct, sir.  That should have been %{REQUEST_URI}.
