hmm. I made invisible files visible so now I see .alias .bash_profile .bashrc and .cshrc, but not .htaccess
Is it possible that it isn’t there? can I create it? what needs to go in it besides the snippet you gave me earlier to solve my current problem.
there was a problem with the server about a couple of days ago and they had to reboot/restore the server. Could the .htaccess not have been restored?:
your sites are hosted on (randall) became unresponsive and had to be
rebooted shortly after you wrote in. It’s now back up and running
normally as are your sites. The admins will be keeping an eye on the
server for a bit longer just to make sure it remains stable.[/quote]
So I just created a .htaccess file in sparrowmagazine.com folder and then added the line [quote]Redirect 301 /index.php http://www.sparrowmagazine.com/issue01[/quote] as you suggested. It looks like its working. Thanks!
But what else should be in that .htaccess file? It seems weird that the file wasn’t there.
