Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Both directories are in place on the server, none needs to be created and I have no idea how to use anything but Apache redirect, which apparently I don't know enough about. The one I want redirection from has a decent ranking that pulls traffic, which needs to be discarded for the new one because of how the directories are named.
It all worked on the previous server, not on this one. And there are a few places it's really necessary.
If your looking to do the redirects from within http config ( or what ever it is called?)when you have access to the servers apache?
Your going to need to look at redirects in apache.
