Typically this works when inserted into the .htaccess file.

Code: Select all

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


Make sure you've changed the .htaccess file name from htaccess.txt to .htaccess

Does moving the two added lines up to immediately follow "rewriteengine on" make a difference?

Double check the type of server that you're running. Apache or IIS?

Well - i guess that's why changing the htaccess file did nothing.

The web.config file is there for IIS setups.

never tried it on IIS - try this: http://forums.iis.net/t/1148516.aspx

The code above is for Apache servers and does not work with IIS.

For anyone that does use this with Apache, there's explicit instructions detailed in the file for where to place any additional redirects.
