Domain redirect


#1

Good morning - I apologize if this has already be covered in the forum. Not having any luck searching past posts.

I want to have www.example.com/ resolve to www.example.com/blog/. What is the best way of doing this? I see that under “Manage Domains” in panel.dreamhost.com there is a " Redirected (A redirect to another site; browser URL changes.)" but I am not sure if this is what I am looking for.

Appreciate the guidance - David

Create a file called .htaccess

Put just one line in it

<?php header('Location: http://www.example.com/blog/.'); ?>

upload .htacess to http://www.example.com

That’s what i would do. fast and easy

Go to DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> Web Hosting --> Edit, change the root directory of your domain to http://www.example.com/blog/

Save the changes and it is done. :slight_smile:

The only caveat with changing the root directory is that you’ll have to check the config files to make sure they don’t point to http://mydomain.com/blog, but just http://mydomain.com now that the root directory has changed.
