Rebuilt an existing site:
Old site used aspx pages, for example:http://www.americascarshow.com/Detail.aspx?dct=11&mid=1656 (broken)
New site is in Joomla; new link is:http://americascarshow.com/gadgetcentral
I tried a 301 redirect in .htaccess file but cld not get it to work.
I need a solution to redirect links to new pages and/or at least get them to redirect to the site's homepage.
Thanks in advance for any help!
.htaccess on a windows server? You running Apache or IIS? If IIS, .htaccess won't work - well not without a lot of messing about. IIS should have its own way of providing a 301, but can't help with that as I know v. little about IIS.
No. The new server is Apache. The old server was IIS. That is part of the problem.
Yeah, that's what I was referring to - the old server. How about this:
My apologies for not explaining the situation more fully.
The old server (IIS) is no longer. But the aspx links that it used still "live" in Google and I wld like to redirect those aspx links to the new (Apache) server site.
I have had limited success using a 301 redirect in .htaccess; for example:
Redirect 301 /Home.aspx http://www.americascarshow.com/
Works fine. But the example that I opened the post with:
Redirect 301 /Detail.aspx?dct=11&mid=1656 http://www.americascarshow.com/
Does not work nor does any link that has a "?" after the aspx.
So I need a solution to redirect broken links that use the old aspx? nomenclature to the new pages at the site.
Ah, I see, you need a regex (wo)man. I'm a complete numpty at regex - anybody else out there?
