Hi,

I am changing domains from oldname.org to newname.com file system and everything else is basically the same /forum. I'll still own oldname.org domain so can setup redirects there. So if someone clicks an oldname.org link it redirects:

www.oldname.org/forum/hereisthepost

i would need it to go to

www.newname.com/forum/hereisthepost

Happy to pay someone for this solution. I am thinking it's just a simple htaccess adjustment in oldname.org/forum/.htaccess ?

It should also redirect basic level oldname.org to newname.com

Thanks

Code:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.newname.com/$1 [R=301,L]
Thanks man! So would this be all I have in site htaccess? In the root of public html of old domain? PM me your paypal address for a thank you :)

Yup add it to the public_html directory of your old website in a .htaccess file.
I wouldn't charge for something that took me 1 minute. Happy to help :)

None of this is required if you have cPanel.

Simply set a wildcard to redirect the domain as a wildcard domain. It's as simple as that. You don't even have to edit your .htaccess. It will redirect to the new domain path from simply doing that.

To explain better. You need to go to domain redirects and set it to be a wildcard redirect.
