Hello experts,

I am trying to do something very simple using htaccess:


Redirect all the page is following :

http://www.mydomain.com/direcotry1/directory2/

TO:

http://www.mydomain.com/direcotry1/301.html

There is already an htaccess file inside the "direcotry1" folder and its the only htaccess file i can access.

Thank you. I hope to find a quick resolution.

Make sure that you have the rewrite engine on in your apache configuration and put this in the htaccess or section of the httpd.conf for this host:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   !^www\.mydomain\.com/direcotry1/directory2/[NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   !^$
RewriteRule ^/(.*)         http://http://www.mydomain.com/direcotry1/301.html/$1 [L,R]

Hi again,

I have pasted your code yet nothing is happening.
I have more codes of RewriteRule for other sub-directories so maybe that's why it does not work?

It should? what do you mean? it should work or the fact i am having more code there might create a problem?

i do not understand how does line 3 in your code knows that it should refer to line 1 in your code if i have more similar lines before it.

Are you keeping the rewrite conditions with the rewrite rules that belong to them?  Are there any other rewrite rules that overlap with this?

still does not work...

i checked. there is no code related to this directory e.g. "directory2".
your rewrite rule have this " http://http://" is this ok?

would it be better to have an htaccess inside the "directory2" folder and then redirect all the pages from there?

Hi _jesper_

removing the double http did not help. but the code i found works fine, have a look above.
 
RewriteRule ^directory2/(.*) http://www.domain.com/directory1/301.html [R=301,L] 

Open in new window


is it ok to use just this code?

If it works, yes.  It will catch everything with "directory2" as a word of caution if you host multiple virtual hosts.
