Forward to WWW
forwarding your domain to www address

I am wondering how I can setup my Redhat Linux box to forward any traffic that goes to the address mydomainexample.com to www.mydomainexample.com.

This must also work for pages within the site such as mydomainexample.com/site/it/exam/ should go to www.mydomainexample.com/site/it/exam/

Thanks ahead of time

Assuming you're running Apache on your Linux box, you should add this to httpd.conf or to the .htaccess file in your document root:

Options +FollowSymLinks 
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [example.com...] [R=301,L]

You need mod_rewrite enabled, of course.
