How to redirect requests to another folder using .htaccess?

I have my root directory and my website looks into that directory. I want it to look in the /subdirectory/ instead. I can't modify the server config.

Try this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com$
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^$ subdirectory [L]

If you want an external redirect, set the R flag there as well:

RewriteRule ^$ /subdirectory [L,R=301]
