I need to redirect any domain to a sub-domain. I know this has got to be possible but for the life of me i can not figure it out. Any help is appreciated.

For example:

domain2.com subdomain1.domain1.com subdomain2.domain2.com

all go to subdomain3.domain.com

but i need code that does not require me to enter each domain i want redirected. So for any feature domains that i link or create will go to subdomain3.domain.com btw this will only happen when viewing anydomain.com/path <-- the path is a sym link

  • In other words... if the domain is not "subdomain3.domain.com" then redirect to this?

I’m not sure if I understand your question right. If you want to redirect all requests to path to subdomain3.example.com just compare the hosts:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^subdomain3\.example\.com$
RewriteRule ^path http://subdomain3.example.com/ [L,R=301]


RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^subdomain3\.example\.com$
# At least one character after /
RewriteRule (.+) http://subdomain3.example.com/$1 [L,R=301]
  • ok so you really did not get it. I think. I just need any feature dome pointing to /path be redirected to the proper domain. so any domain coming into my site and pointing to /path will be redirected to subdomain3.mydomain.com/path Jun 10, 2011 at 7:25
  • Should work now.

  • can you explain a little more on this. It does not work somewhat. It seems like it trys to work but does not fully redirect. the domain address still shows domain1.com/path domain2.com/path but the style sheet goes away i need a complete rewrite of any domain. Jun 10, 2011 at 17:56
  • Then you have either later rewrite rules or your adaption is missing a critical part (maybe R=301?). What says your rewrite log?
