Htaccess can't redirect home directory

So, I’m trying to 301 my root directory to a sub directory - my .htaccess redirect works fine from the sub directory to the root, but not the other way around.

Works fine:
Redirect 301 /sub-directory

Doesn’t work:
Redirect 301 /

It trys to redirect to a url like this: etc.

Actually it is working just fine.

After reading the documentation one would come to the conclusion thatRedirect 301 / a bad idea!

Just use a php redirect like index.php:

<?php header( 'Location:' ) ; ?>

Save [color=#CC0000]$97[/color] on Dreamhost plans by using promo code: [color=#CC0000]SRVR97[/color]
