Basically I am trying to redirect a few pages from an old site to specific urls at a new site.
All other URLs on that old site should be redirected to a specific subdirectory on the new site.
This is how I'm trying to do it, but everything is being sent to http://www.example.com/everything-else-points-here/
RewriteRule ^/index.php/exception1(.*)$ http://www.example.com/destination1 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^/index.php/exception2(.*)$ http://www.example.com/destination2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^/index.php/exception3(.*)$ http://www.example.com/destination3 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/everything-else-points-here/ [R=301,L]
Any help would be appreciated because I seem to have hit a wall at this point. Thanks!
Edit: Nevermind, I didn't escape the . in index.php... sigh
