I have a site running on W2012 with XAMPP. I have a live site that was in subfolder /foo. It now needs to be changed to /home.
I set up an alias Alias /foo "C:/xampp/htdocs/home"
This takes users from foo-->home... however they lose the page that they were going to. The problem is a lot of the pages on foo were privately given so we would be expecting users to understand that they need to copy their page to the new url. I need a user going to foo/client-demo to go automatically to home/client-demo.
Addition: Yesterday I set up a redirect.
Redirect foo/client-demo home/client-demo
This works. Then I thought that the reason the Alias isn't working is my SSO. I have an SSO SAML login script that redirects the user the their entry page. So if the user starts at foo/xyz the alias kicks them to home/xyz (maybe on the xyz) and then they hit the login script and go back to their referral page.
