Help with .htaccess file please

Postby JKY » 25. December 2011 11:50

I've tried a few different ways of writing a .htaccess file, found online (eg http://devmoose.com/coding/20-htaccess-hacks-every-web-developer-should-know-about), but can't get them to do what I want. I'm no web developer, so need to some expert help...

I have a lot of folders at the root of my website, one of which contains my Wordpress site.

At the moment, I use meta refresh in the index.html file, eg http://www.mydomain.com/index.html, to take visitors to my wordpress site.

I've tried using .htaccess in the root folder, redirecting visitors from index.html file (http://www.mydomain.com/index.html) to the Wordpress folder, but it messes up the links to other folders, like my other blog, a folder and a subdomain.

Could someone tell me what I can put in the .htaccess file, please? I need it to ignore all folders and just take visitors that arrive at http://www.mydomain.com/. If they want to go to http://www.mydomain.com/another/folder/on/my/website/, then they're not going to get redirected to my Wordpress site.

Thanks.
JKY

The Apache web server provides several way for setting up redirects.

The most simple one is using the “Redirect” directive. You want to Redirect index.html to a specific subfolder it can be accomplished by editing your htaccess and writing these rules:
Code: Select all
# This allows you to redirect index.html to a specific subfolder
Redirect /index.html http://example.com/newdirectory/


To redirect a specific index page you can use:

Code: Select all
# Provide Specific Index Page (Set the default handler)
DirectoryIndex index.html


I hope it serves your purpose.
