on a unix server how can I redirect the following from mydomain.com/Generals to subdomain.mydomain/Generals

What i have now in my .htaccess file is

RedirectPermanent /Generals http://subdomain.mydomain.com/Generals

also tried

RedirectMatch permanent ^/Generals$ http://subdomain.mydomain.com/Generals



Either gives me a redirect loop that won't resolve.

tia,
jim

Does the dubdomain live in a subdirectory of the main domain? blink.gif

You can't do it with simple redirects. You can do it with mod_rewrite though. Search for the "Canonical Hostnames" example in the Apache URL Rewriting Guide.

Thanks Darin,

I love the line . . . "With mod_rewrite you either shoot yourself in the foot the first time and never use it again or love it for the rest of your life because of its power."

Crap. I suspected that was the answer. I realized I nowadays have the same situation as you do. The CP forces the location of subdomains' root folders inside the main domain's folder. I suck at mod_rewrite or anything else that involves regex. ninja.gif
