I want to redirect the URL: to

I have the following in my httpd.conf file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/site/(.*) /~username/site/$1 [PT]

but this does not seem to be working. It tries to look for /site under /var/www/site/ and fails. What am I doing wrong? FYI, I have also tried with:

RewriteRule ^/site/(.*)$ /~username/site/$1 [PT]

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/site/(.*) /~username/site/$1 [PT]

That code should be going into .htaccess, not httpd.conf. Try that, and it should fix your issue.
