Htaccess & WWW


#1

I’m trying to use a .htaccess file to redirect the RSS feed from my blog (switching to Feedburner for better info tracking). I’m running into a problem where the file will only redirect if WWW. is used at the front of the address. For example, the first link below will get redirected while the second doesn’t.

http://www.mysite.com/pathToRedirect
http://mysite.com/pathToRedirect

Since my old feed does not include the WWW., the redirect as-is isn’t going to do me much good. Is there anything I can add or change to the following line to make it WWW. agnostic?

Redirect permanent /files/blog.xml http://feeds.feedburner.com/dsteinwedelrecordingblog

Thanks,
Dave

Works for me.

Without WWW
http://web-sniffer.net/?url=http://dsteinwedel.com/files/blog.xml

With WWW

http://web-sniffer.net/?url=http://www.dsteinwedel.com/files/blog.xml

Try forcing a Refresh to make sure your browser isn’t showing you stale content from its cache.
