I created a 301 redirect on .htaccess file on linux shared server website

I did it incorrectly and have changed redirect to another website

But firefox browser windows 10 (my machine only: I did not try on other computers) still has first redirect.

Flush the cache manually under Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, Cached Web Content.

If that doesn't resolve it then you'll need to restart Firefox.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Good rule of thumb. Always start with 302s (not cached in browser) first, till you've debugged everything correctly.

To fix your problem, I'd first suggest you visit your page using a non-browser tool, like curl to ensure you've actually fixed the problem at the server level. You'll do this via...

curl -I -L URL

Open in new window


Which will generate the entire redirect chain related to the URL provided to curl.

Can't tell you how many times I've spent a good bit of time chasing a redirect problem, then to realize the 301 was cached on the server side + still serving.

You can also just post your URL here + someone can test it for you, to ensure you've broken the 301 redirect chain correctly at your server side.
