Every now and then I must fuddle around with mod_rewrite in other words Apache's redirect. Now I've got a simple task, that drives me nuts, cause I can not have it working:
Exactly what was under
/journal/(.*) has become under
This is exactly what I've now:
RewriteEngine on RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^/journal/([^/]+)$ /blog/$1
Whether it matters: this can be a drupal installation.
- Drupal has existing rewrite rules in
.htaccess. Should you place your rules towards the top of the file, Drupal's rules may override them.
- I do not think you would like the beginning
/inside your rule.
- If you are expecting the rule to redirect people that make use of the old
/blog/URL, you are mistaken. If that is what you are attempting to do, you will need to execute a redirection, such as this:
RewriteEngine on RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^journal/(.+)$ http://example.com/blog/$1 [R=301,L]
as your rewrite is made of / I believe you are able to omit the / before journal. so try
RewriteRule ^journal/([^/]+)$ /blog/$1
Also for those who have every other rules happening you are able to append [L] towards the finish from the statement to make certain not one other rewrites happen.
