I know how to rewrite urls to redirect to a page.

When the "/" is not at the end of the redirect works:

RewriteRule /$ /user/index.php

When I write RewriteBase / the above rule does not work, but a 404 error.

How to add a "/" at the end of and still redirect to /user/index.php.

This can be written into the .htaccess or httpd.conf

Thanks Jean

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

@johnConde I am hoping people provide an answer to my question – Jean Feb 27 '11 at 19:17
Me too. :) – John Conde Feb 27 '11 at 19:20
@johnConde that would totally nullify your purpose of redirecting this question from serverfault to prowebmaster – Jean Feb 27 '11 at 19:25
I didn't do it. The moderators or users of ServerFault did it. They did it because this question belongs here, not at that site. And believe it or not questions get answered here, too. ;) – John Conde Feb 27 '11 at 19:28

Your english seems a bit confusing...

But from what I gather, the regular expression in your pattern isn't correct.

I belive you're trying to match everything to /user/index.php so try it this way:

RewriteRule /(.*)$ /user/index.php

That would hold good for, would it be good for if the domain is – Jean Feb 28 '11 at 7:42
Absolutely, that catches all requests and sending them to /user/index.php – Dani Mar 6 '11 at 12:09

The problem is that you're referring to a directory that doesn't exist. Is the .htaccess file in the root directory of you're server?
