I'm trying to use a .htaccess file, in order to do a 301 redirection in the following form:
RedirectMatch 301 old-directory(.*) new-directory/$1
but each time I upload the .htaccess file to the server I get an Internal Server Error for all the site. There's no difference if I upload the file through WebFTP or FTP, or wether I upload the original .htaccess file or I use a htaccess.txt and then I rename it... The result is always the same: Internal Server Error.
Another clue: wenn I try to rename htaccess.txt into .htaccess I get following warning: "Forbidden in /home/webftp_dh/webftp.dreamhost.com/plugins/access.fs/class.fsAccessDriver.php (l.919)"
