I'm using vBulletin 5...according to what some senior members are saying, the RewriteBase is required...*shrugs*
[vbulletin.com...] - Post #6
Also, https://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/85/Using+.htaccess+rewrite+rules#gs (the example below is kinda what I'm trying to achieve....folder1 is /support and folder2 is /forums)
This .htaccess file will redirect http://example.com/folder1/file.html to http://example.com/folder2/file.html. Choose this version if your content is duplicated in both directories:
File name: .htaccess
RewriteRule ^folder1/(.*)$ [gs.mt-example.com...] [R=301,L]
Is htaccess able to find a specific text in a URL, change it to the new text that it will redirect to ("support" to "forums") and then carry out the rest of the URL? If there's more text after "/support/", can htaccess hook the text to the new text "/forums/"? Or do I have to create a specific rule for every URL that has a category after /support/?
Eh man.....trying to make this as clear as possible to you guys...
