Avoiding 404 page

I have an issue with case sensitivity and could use a hand please.

A Few Documents that I have sent out I Capitalized a word in the URL to make it stand out. Unfortunately when I go to that URL with the word capitalized it wont work.

Example

[url]www.mydomain.com/join[/url] (or join/) go to the correct url.

When I Capitilize a letter on any folder on my site

Example

[url]www.mydomain.com/Join[/url] (or Join/) this goes to 404 page

Also every other folder name gets the same error

FYI I'm set up on an Apache server / Linux System

Thanks for any help

If it is a very small number then a 301 redirect will do what you want.

You'll need one line of code for each URL.

Apache is case sensitive, so any difference between two URLs makes them two different URLs.
