Redirecting a domain name to a subdirectory of a different domain Shatner msg:4298558 10:02 pm on Apr 15, 2011 (gmt 0) Wasn't sure where to ask this, apologies if it's in the wrong spot. So I have a primary domain, let's call it primary.com. I also have a secondary domain, let's call it secondary.com I have these directories: primary.com/one/ primary.com/two/ primary.com/three/ I would like to set up a redirect which makes the second one... secondary.com/two/ Without affecting primary.com/one/ primary.com/three/ primary.com Is that possible? I can't quite wrap my head around out how to do it, but it seems like it should be doable. Hopefully I explained that well enough.

if you put this in the .htaccess file in your document root directory it will redirect exactly the subdirectory "/two/" to the "secondary.com" domain, but none of the contents of "two" will be redirected: Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^two\/$ [ ...] [R=301,L] secondary.com is that what you were looking for? g1smd msg:4299716 8:41 am on Apr 18, 2011 (gmt 0)
Forward slashes never need escaping.
RewriteRule ^two/(.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Close, but I actually do also want the contents of "two" to be redirected. At the same time if someone types in secondary.com/one/ I want it to redirect to primary.com/one/ Including all the contents on all of those directories in this. Again, apologies if I'm explaining this in a confusing way.
