I am having problem with using RedirectRules on URL's that actually work before a redirect. Can anyone lend advice?
WHAT DOES WORK (non-working before rewrite URL's)
If you go to www.mywebsite.com/foobar before a rewrite, it would give you 404 because the directory does not exist.
Then after implementing a RedirectRule --
RedirectRule ^/foobar$ http://www.mywebsite.com/folder/directory/page.html [R=301]
-- It works fine
WHAT DOESN’T WORK (working before rewrite URL's)
I have an old page that should map to a new page:
http://www.qualityserviceandsupport.com/TWKB/kbase_usa.html (this is a REAL page)
RedirectRule ^/TWKB/kbase_usa\.html$ http://www.qualityserviceandsupport.com/brady [R=301]
I have tried placing this at the beginning of the ini file, the end, nothing seems to work for redirects if the incoming request is for a real existing page. I have tried implementing this on both HTML and ASP pages, both unsuccessfully.
I don’t seem to be alone - maybe this is a bug?
