View Full Version : .htaccess redirect

01-20-2006, 02:05 PM
Hi, everyone.
I am totally new to his and completely lost! Can anyone tell me how to do a simple .htaccess redirect to my site. Here's the info. My domain name is http://www.shininglightbooks.com I want people who type in that string to be redirected to my miva store which is http://www.shininglightbooks.com/mm5/merchant.mvc. I have checked the internet and from what I find the code should look like this:

redirect / http://www.shininglightbooks.com/mm5/merchant.mvc/

But this doesn't work, nor does it work if I take off the / at the end. Can someone tell me what I need to do?

Thanks for your help.

I outlined a better way to accomplish this in another thread in the Miva Merchant forum.
