mod_rewrite: xxx.com redirect to www.xxx.com

Discussion in 'Apache' started by nicolas9510, Jan 22, 2007.

  1. #1
    as the tile says i want to redirect xxx.com to www.xxx.com on my domain
    i searched google and tried(in .htaccess):
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    Rewriteengine On
    rewritecond %{http_host} ^proxyforfun.com [nc]
    rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.proxyforfun.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
    SEMrush
    this doesnt seem to work, i put it at the root of my website. i check the apache config file and made sure that mod_rewrite was loaded(and it is)

    any ideas why this doesn work? or another way to do this?
    thanks

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^proxyforfun\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.proxyforfun.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    </IfModule>
    
    Code (markup):
    i don't see why this wouldn't work, it's baically what Nintendo wrote for you. Give it a try.

    i tried putting that in the .htaccess file, still doesnt work, when i type without the www it still loads without redirecting to www domain
    i have no earthly clue why this would happen

    E-Mail your web host! And try this test

    Options +Indexes
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^wacko\.html$ index.XXX [L]

    If domain.com/wacko.html doesn't show the same thing as index.XXX (whatever extension is) then you don't have it!!
