.htaccess redirect

Recommended Posts

I have 1 main domain and 1 addon domain. I'd like that when a visitor goes to maindomain.com it redirects to addondomain.com. The problem I'm having is that my addon domain is a subfolder of maindomain.com so I can't just do redirect / http://addondomain.com. It gives me "The page isn't redirecting properly".

What you're looking for is not a redirect, but a rewrite rule. Something like this (but not necessarily this) might work:RewriteEngine onRewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} addondomain.comRewriteRule (.+) path_to_addondomain/$1I've always found these things require a bit of experiment, both for the new thing and also to make sure you haven't messed up something old. Also, make sure everything works for your linked files, like scripts and stylesheets. Google RewriteRule and apache and see what turns up. The apache docs at apache's website are a thorough reference, but not tutorials.
