The original subdomain is currently pointed away from the normal server (another DNS), but will be changed back. I've done some testing on another subdomain (same DNS) to see if it works or not...and it doesn't.
Oh, ###, that makes all the difference. The htaccess has to be located where the original request will see it. That means in the subdomain's current home, wherever it may be.
Since you're capturing two things from the Rule, it would be www.example.com/$1/$2 etc. But it could perfectly well also be
as a single $1 capture, since you're using both pieces in their original order.
