Hi all,
   Prob a very quick one here. Client has the following site and would like a re-direct (IIS Server)

New         - WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/newsite

they want to include everything from after the old site as well:
WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/oldsite/MyFile.pfd
WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/newsite/MyFile.pdf

Requested URL: Matches the Pattern
Using: Regular Expression
Pattern: ^oldsite

Action Type: Redirect

Thanks for that,
   It seems i'm just being Very Special here.......

I am trying to complete this using IIS 7.5 using the GUI.

I have the option to create a new rule on either the Root or the sub folder, i have tried to add this to the Root URL Re-write (inbound rule) but i must be missing something.

Thanks,

no problem, in the field for pattern, put:

^oldsite/(.*)$

and for the redirect url, put in:

/newsite/$1

www.domain.com/newsite/$1
