When a webpage is moved,
Redirectcan be used to map the file location to a new URL. The format is as follows:
Redirect /<old-path>/<file-name> http://<current-domain>/<current-path>/<file-name>
In this example, replace <old-path> with the old path information for <file-name> and <current-domain> and <current-path> with the current domain and path information for <file-name>.
In this example, any requests for <file-name> at the old location is automatically redirected to the new location.
For more advanced redirection techniques, use the
mod_rewritemodule included with the Apache HTTP Server. For more information about configuring the
mod_rewritemodule, refer to the Apache Software Foundation documentation online at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_rewrite.html.
