How to redirect home page to english version

Post by kerastes » Sun Mar 31, 2013 8:20 am

Hello community,

i have 2 joomla installations for 1 domain for the 2 languages installed, when i first created the website i didn't make English the primary language, so the main site is ''www.mysite.com'' and the English version is ''www.mysite.com/en'' (the 2nd joomla installation)

But i am trying to submit to some directories and most of them require my site to be in english so they keep rejecting my submissions just because the main landing page is not in English, so i was thinking, how to redirect ''www.mysite.com'' to ''www.mysite.com/en'', but i don't know if that is bad for SEO.

Any advise ?

Thanks

What version of Joomla! (e.g., 1.5.26, 2.5.9) is being used?

What method is being used to implement the multilingual site?
