to go to:


basically, I'd like to have any request that would have been directed to the /cgi-bin/boards dir. redirected to the new URL and page.

So, something like:

Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com] Legolas.

Be sure to read Marcia`s WebmasterWorld Welcome and Guide to the Basics [webmasterworld.com] post which contains a lot of very helpful information on how things are dome at WebmasterWorld.

Have a look at An Introduction to Redirecting URLs on an Apache Server [webmasterworld.com] to get you started on how to do URL rewriting using mod_rewrite. These fora contain an extensive number of examples of the thing you want to do. Use the site search [searchengineworld.com] to look for relevant threads.

Hope this helps.
