I have a server with multiple sites on, and only one .htaccess
Is ".htaccess" a simple typo for "config file" OR is there a single htaccess in one location in addition to the config file OR is all the quoted content in an htaccess file? (I really hope not, since you're quoting config-only material.)
What I'm trying to do is redirect everything from "www.example.net/tece"
Does "everything from" mean all URLs beginning in "www.example.net/tece" or does it mean the one specific URL "www.example.net/tece"? Based on the prose I'd assume "beginning in", but all forms of the Regular Expression have an ending anchor, meaning "exact (extensionless) URL".
The Regular Expression ^/tece$ means www.example.com/tece only and nothing else.
