I’m a little stumped with a small problem where I have created a new website to replace an older one.
I have used a different domain and used wordpress through dreamhost.
To change over, I used Edit and then Redirect from the dreamhost panel.
So now, www.old.org forwards to www.new.com
My problem is when you try to go to www.old.org/Main/aPage
You get redirected to www.new.com/Main/aPage
aPage doesn’t exist on my new website and neither does Main, and unfortunately it doesn’t have the sense to go to www.new.com on its own like I entered in the box on dreamhost.
To make everything easier, I would just like to have everything under www.old.org forward to the homepage www.new.com
I’m fairly new to all this but have done a little research, and some have suggested editing a .htaccess file.
Would this be the correct procedure?
Or is there a Dreamhost setting I can edit to make this work?
