RedirectMatch and Dump Query Strings

 3:39 am on Jul 17, 2012 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to redirect everything in the "foo" directory and below, to a file. This works...

redirectMatch 301 ^/foo/ http://www.example.com/filename/

...except it also appends any query strings found in "/foo/" to "/filename/"...which results in "/filename/?=true" not just /filename/.

How do I make sure any query strings get stripped from the redirect?

Use a RewriteRule instead and add a question mark to the end of the target URL.

Convert all of your rules that use Redirect or RedirectMatch to instead use RewriteRule.
