What is the correct format to point several pages on the same domain to one page in the .htaccess file. Can it all be done on one RedirectPermanent line or will it take several. Is this correct :

RedirectPermanent /old page-1.html /old page-2.html http://example.com/new-page.html

or:

RedirectPermanent /old page-1.html http://example.com/new-page.html

RedirectPermanent /old page-2.html http://example.com/new-page.html

You'll need to list them out, as in your second example.

However, if these old pages' URL-paths have a lot in common, then look into using RedirectMatch, with which you can use regular expressions pattern-matching to match more than one URL-path.

For a simple example:

RedirectMatch 301 ^/old-page-[12]\.html$ http://example.com/new-page.html
