Add below code in your .htaccess file which is in the folder:

redirect 301 /folder /index.php or index.html or domain name

Open in new window


Change your index file extension or use domain name.

Also if you have many files in the folder then you have to redirect all pages by using 3.1 code.

Thanks
Edwin

Thanks to both experts.  Edwin:  are you saying that the .htaccess belongs in the subdomain folder, not in the root folder?

Use it in the main root folder and change the folder path to your folder name.
