htaccess dilemma

Posted on 2014-04-15

I added some code to my .htaccess , redirecting requests for a subfolder to the root domain, because there is a third-party site which is referring visitors to a subfolder which no longer exists (/MAU):

Rewriterule ^MAU(.*)$ http://www.mauivacationrental.com$1 [r=301,nc]

Unexpectedly, this has disrupted access to an existing subfolder on my site, directing browsers to a default "non-existent URL" site.  Here is the URL which is now broken:
 
http://www.mauivacationrental.com/Maui-Beaches

Please advise how I can perform the redirect and avoid interfering with the valid link.

Try removing nc (nocase). This will only match if the request is all caps:
Rewriterule ^MAU(.*)$ http://www.mauivacationrental.com$1 [r=301]
