hi
i have this rewrite rule in place on my apache server

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}  !^www.mysite.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/mysite/ [R=301]

i'm trying to get all requests to go to http://www.mysite.com/mysite/
when i type mysite.com on my browser it forwards/rewrites correctly but when i try it with www.mysite.com it doesn't redirect.  would this be the rewritecond or something else like dns?
thanks

Try

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/mysite/$1 [R=301,L]

it adds an extra / at the end when i try it that way.  so when i type mysite.com i get to http://www.mysite.com/mysite//
 but when i type www.mysite.com it still returns a "not found"

seems to go into a loop like that http://www.mysite.com/mysite/mysite/mysite/mystie/... until it errors out.

modified the document root and get this now


Forbidden
you don't have permission to access / on this server.  
not sure if this is on a better track to fixing the problem.

that puts it in a loop too.
if i edit it like this it gives me a "Forbidden"  " you don't have permission to access / on this server"
could it be something else at this point?
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.mysite.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.com/mysite$1 [R=301,L]
