.htaccess rule to redirect to mobile URI help needed

Hello, I am needing to redirect website visitors to a mobile site based on the user agent information. I've found below code in research and works ok for iphone and android, but I need to redirect to equivalent pages between the desktop and mobile site. For example, if a mobile visitor lands on www.website.com/page5.html, they need to redirect to m.website.com/page5.html. The below code only redirects mobile visitors to  http://m.website.com.

I've experimented with adding:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
RewriteRule ^ http://m.website.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

Open in new window


in a few different ways to the below code, but doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know of how I can alter the below working code to redirect to specific pages / URIs?

Thank You!

Current Code:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP:x-wap-profile} !^$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Profile}       !^$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "acs|alav|alca|amoi|audi|aste|avan|benq|bird|blac|blaz|brew|cell|cldc|cmd-" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "dang|doco|eric|hipt|inno|ipaq|java|jigs|kddi|keji|leno|lg-c|lg-d|lg-g|lge-" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT}  "maui|maxo|midp|mits|mmef|mobi|mot-|moto|mwbp|nec-|newt|noki|opwv" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "palm|pana|pant|pdxg|phil|play|pluc|port|prox|qtek|qwap|sage|sams|sany" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "sch-|sec-|send|seri|sgh-|shar|sie-|siem|smal|smar|sony|sph-|symb|t-mo" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "teli|tim-|tosh|tsm-|upg1|upsi|vk-v|voda|w3cs|wap-|wapa|wapi" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "wapp|wapr|webc|winw|winw|xda|xda-" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "up.browser|up.link|windowssce|iemobile|mini|mmp" [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} "symbian|midp|wap|phone|pocket|mobile|pda|psp" [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !macintosh [NC]

# Now redirect to the mobile site
RewriteRule ^ http://m.website.com [R,L]

To change the hostname, but keep the pathname, replace your last line with:
RewriteRule  ^/(.*)  http://m.website.com/$1  [R,L]
