Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Hence, I have modified my hosts file to allow my browser to "see" the new website. I have added a 30 redirect to the .htaccess file for each product (as such)
Redirect 301 /catalog/vortex_tubes.php [mysite.com...]
but when testing, it simply gives me a page not found error on the new site.
My syntax is correct. Would there be any reason this wouldn't test out properly?
This does not depend on the new URL returning a valid page or not. That's another step, and not dependent on the redirect.
