301 redirect from old category to the new [Need Help]

Post by puneetjain87 » Sun Nov 20, 2011 8:29 pm

I have a category, the url of which looks like mysite.com/oldcateogry

Now I want to redirect it to the new category, so my url should look like mysite.com/newcategory.

Also, all the pages like page-1, page-2 etc should be redirected to respective pages of the new category.

How can I do it in .htaccess.

Thanks in advance

Google for 301 redirection htaccess. It might be that my code is not working on your server. I did like this (after rewrite base):

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^optimizacija-sajta$ http://www.leftfield.me/seo/optimizacija-sajta [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^intervju-sa-markom-milenovicem$ http://www.leftfield.me/intervjui/intervju-sa-markom-milenovicem [R=301,L]
Its all after: RewriteBase /

If I have the following:

http://example.com/blog-domain-name/blog-post.html

I want it like this:

http://example.com/blog/blog-post.html

Can I do this with a simple 301 redirect using wildcard without complex apache mod_rewrite?

Like /blog-domain-name/* /blog/*

Will new blog URL know that I want all requests arriving at destination blog posts?

Is this the answer:

RedirectMatch 301 /old-category(.*) /new-category/$1
