.htaccess syntax

 7:51 pm on Nov 2, 2001 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to set up a global 301 redirect for a site that has moved to a new domain and I'm having some trouble with syntax.

I'd like to any request for any page on the old domain to redirect to a "this site has moved" page. ie: anything at domainA.com and it's subdirectories will redirect to domainA.com/moved.htm

Hi Oilman,

RedirectMatch uses regular expressions

RedirectMatch regex Full-URL
produces a 302 error

RedirectMatch permanent regex Full-URL
produces a 301 error

RedirectMatch gone regex
produces a 410 error

The following line should work. It worked for me.

RedirectMatch permanent (.*) [domainA.com...]
