helllpppp *parked domain/redirect issue*


Well-known member
I talked to my host and they said it was my script for the forum that's forcing all my redirected domains or parked domains to keep going back to /index.php. I want some to point to specific forums or folders! Not working!

I've never had this sort of issue before and I've never been much with htaccess :\

The only time I modified it was to remove www. while browsing because it was forcing my users to log out for some reason!

The rules after </IfModule> are useless. They will not execute. They need to be higher, under RewriteEngine On.

And that first block of domain rules should be changed:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^DOMAIN\.us$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://DOMAIN.us/$1 [R=301,L]
That will match all URLs that are not DOMAIN.us which means parked domains will get redirected. I suggest changing it to this:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.DOMAIN\.us$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://DOMAIN.us/$1 [R=301,L]
That will specifically change www.DOMAIN.us to DOMAIN.us
