Hello everyone.

I am planning to do a 301 redirect on a site that is sitting on a Zeus 4.3 server - what method of re-direct should I use?

Many thanks and have a great weekend all. clapping.gif

I've never played with Zeus, so this is a bit of a shot in the dark Andy. I did find a tutorial/reference on their site you may want to look at. From the Redirect section of the document it looks like you should be able to use basic .htaccess to get it done. Though there are a couple of syntax differences I noticed.

Are you redirecting the entire site to a different domain name?

And are the paths going to remain the same after the move, or would it be better to send it all to a single page like the home page because the file structure is all changing?

From the document I think one of the following should be what you're looking for, but remember it's a guess on my part since I don't have a way to test it.

To redirect from one domain to another and keep the same paths:
CODE
redirect permanent / http://www.newdomain.com/


To redirect every page of the old site to the new site's home page because the paths are all going to be different:
CODE
redirect permanent /* http://www.newdomain.com/

Cheers Randy - great stuff as usual. I think it will be the best to re-direct all pages to the home page. The company has merged and the current site will be placed into a subdirectory. Do you think it will be best to re-direct to the index.html in the subdirectory or on the root?

It's not for a couple of weeks yet - I will let you guys know the results. wink1.gif

hmm... For a better user experience I'd probably redirect straight to the subdirectory Andy. Unless there was some overriding reason for real people to be sent to the main home page instead.
