.htaccess problem

#1
Hey

I am trying to get 301 htaccess redirect to work at the same time with mod_rewrite full friendly url's. The problem is I am unsure how to make them work together so that www.example.com/community points to example.com/community.

Code for the mod_rewrite full friendly urls:
HTML:
#    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
#    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#    SecFilterEngine Off
#    SecFilterScanPOST Off
#</IfModule>

ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    #RewriteBase /xenforo

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^(data|js|styles|install) - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
</IfModule>
Code for 301 redirect
HTML:
RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.prteamwork.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://prteamwork.com/community/$1 [L,R=301]
Many thanks and sorry for posting lots of code

I use this for removing www from all URLs, but in the root .htaccess, not the forum .htaccess:

Code:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.cliptheapex.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://cliptheapex.com/$1 [R=301,L]

hmm
I've tried that in the root and it redirects in the root but doesn't follow through down to /community

The www rules should go before the friendly rules, like so:

Code:
#    Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
#    cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#    SecFilterEngine Off
#    SecFilterScanPOST Off
#</IfModule>

ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.prteamwork.com/community$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://prteamwork.com/community/$1 [R=301,L]

    #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    #RewriteBase /xenforo

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^(data|js|styles|install) - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
</IfModule>
Per this post.
