301 Redirect issue and SEO index.php

Postby hardy1987 » Mon Jul 24, 2017 12:55 pm

Hi there,


Please i am trying to understand i have added 301 for the main page and its working properly.

Example : http://www.example.com to http://example.com

for some reason when i am trying to redirect the inner pages its kicking me back to the home page with index.php

Example : if i am loading this link on my web browser http://example.com/test.html

It is kicking me back to home http://www.example.com/index.php.

I am not sure why is it doing that and it is adding index.php at the end of the main page.

Please help
Thank you

Did you put it in the correct location in the .htaccess file? The comments from Joomla says where to put it.

The purpose of having htaccess file is redirecting the website from non www to www. But you have mentioned as reverse type. How it could be possible?
