Now, converting the data already in our MS Access database to Mysql format is not a problem nor is converting the .asp files to .php an issue.
My problem is this;
I have a lot of pages coded in .asp which are indexed by the search engines and bringing a lot of traffic. Obviously if i migrate to linux the .asp files will not execute nor work.
If i move to the linux server, is there a way that if someone finds our website through the the indexed .asp files in the search engines to redirect them to the equivalent .php files which i will create on the linux server?
i do not want to lose all this traffic coming in from the .asp pages and need to redirect them to the equivalent pages in .php. Also i do not want to redirect the traffic to a generic page but individual pages for all indexed files.
Your help on this issue will be highly appreciated
directove to parse .asp files for PHP, either in httpd.conf or .htaccess.
If you are forced to change the page URLs, then you should use
to generate a 301 Permanent Redirect (never a 302) to the new pages.
Use .html or no extension, and 301 redirects to transition to the new scheme.
I'm not really misdirecting them . Just trying to figure how to reroute the traffic instead of them ending up at dead pages
Anyway the advice you've given is much appreciated
