I have just recently gotten a server from a friend which have freebsd and apache on it.
i want to remove a 301 moved permanently and whatever redirects it might have on a site that it is hosting. can anyone point me to the files that i have to edit to disable this for a specific site or commands i have to run..
yes i am new to both freebsd and apache but i did find that the vhost.txt file contained som info on the redirect but deleting that entry did not fix it.

please help :-)

Did you restart Apache?  That is usually required to effect changes like that.

That looks like that should work.  http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-apache.html

hmm something did change.. for this i used http://redirectcheck.com/ and after the entry was deleted it went from a 301 to:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html

but going to the site still redirects me to the other site.

You're welcome.  Some of these things are not instantaneous, especially DNS.  Also, your browser cache may have brought up the old site if you did not refresh it.

Thanks for the points but I don't think you're stupid because of this.  There are literally thousands of things that have to be dealt with when running a server with web sites.  It is impossible to know or remember everything.
