I have a folder full of images that I want to reorganize, using .htaccess redirect to prevent broken links. Redirects apparently work on directories, but not for an individual file. That is:
Redirect 301 / http://www.panix.com/~iayork/
works in that it redirects my entire folder to my other site’s “Images” folder – as it should – but when I try to redirect a single image file thus:
Redirect 301 /Amy&William.JPG http://www.iayork.com/Images/Old_Images/Amy&William.JPG
gives me a 404 Not Found error. (The new file works fine when I go directly there.)
Am I doing something wrong? As far as I can see the syntax is correct, and I’ve tried every other plausible variant I can think of with no success.
Thanks for any suggestions.
