hi,

I have implemented the mod_redirect in the httpd conf file.

Below is the source code.

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /htdocs
      RewriteEngine On
      RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
      RewriteRule (.*)/hello\.html$ http:localhost/contact_us.html [R=301,L]
</VirtualHost>

Now i run the code on browser
http://localhost/hello.html

The url is redirected but the page contact_us is not opened.The reason behind is
The url "http://localhost/" is appended to the "http:localhost/contact_us.html"
Below is displayed in the address bar.

http://localhost/http:localhost/contact_us.html

Please suggest how to solve the problem so that the url is redirected to

http:localhost/contact_us.html.

try to set AllowOverride all

example :
   
 DocumentRoot /var/www
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride all
        </Directory>

use either

RewriteRule (.*)/hello\.html$ http://localhost/contact_us.html [R=301,L]
(notice the missing // after http: )

or

RewriteRule (.*)/hello\.html$ /contact_us.html [R=301,L]
