Simple .htaccess Redirect Needed


Mort-lemur

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am in the process of merging 2 sites and will be closing one down (and using the host space to develop my new 2.3.1 stores).

 

I have produced a simple index.htm file informing customers that all products have moved to the other site, but this will not catch people who have linked directly to a product or category.

 

What Im looking for is a simple .htaccess code that redirects all visitors to the index.htm file for 5 seconds (so they are aware of the change) then redirects them to the new area of the other site.

 

Is this possible?

 

Many Thanks

Now running on a fully modded, Mobile Friendly 2.3.4 Store with the Excellent MTS installed - See my profile for the mods installed ..... So much thanks for all the help given along the way by forum members.

Hi chris - cant do that for 2 reasons

 

1) I want the customer to know they are being sent to our other store

 

2) I want to use the catalog area of that domain name on the existing hosting to develop my 2.3.1 site

 

I have added the 5 second redirect to the index.html page - so all I really need is .htaccess code that will redirect all requests (other than catalog or index.html) to the index.html page.

 

Thanks
