subdomains and .htaccess

    Hallo guys,

    I uploaded some pages on my website (shared-hosted) and I would lik to add some subdomains.

    My control panel let me add a DNS entry so I did : download.mydomain.com. Pinging it from dos shell works well.

    I noticed that creating this subdomain a folder named "download" is automatically added to root level.

    I'm going to explain my folders structure:

    [root]
    ------>index.html
    ------>page.html
    ------>[download]
    ----------------> index.html
    ----------------> .htaccess

    I'm pretty sure that mod_rewrite is installed and working.

    I would like that browsing my site with this url: download.mydomain.com I actually browse at root level. So, if I call download.mydomain.com/page.html I can browse the one at root page.

    I don't mean redirect but I wish that in user address bar will remain download.mydomain.com.

    In previous configuration, using IIS, I can simply do this.

    Is it possible in Apache? I tried some rewriting script but none of them worked.

    Any help appreciated.

    Best regards.

    Fabri.

    Try this:

    
    RewriteEngine On
    
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^download\.mydomain\.com$ [NC]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/download/ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)?$ /download/$1 [QSA,L]

    I assume you replaced mydomain with your actual domain name?
