Hi,

I am not sure that this is the right forum for this question, ut I am moving a temporaty installation from /xoops to / on a ISP server. I followed the migration guide, but now some of the links that I greated in the contents cannot be found since it assumes the /xoops root dir.

How to I write a rewrite rule that fixes so that these links still work?

The server is Apache 1.3.33.

Are you sure you are moving to / on ISP's site? Check the path with 'pwd' and then, after changes are done update mainfile.php with a correct path to xoopsinstall and mysql. Then login to adminside and to be safe update all modules including system, news, etc.

Hi,

No, I am not moving to / on the ISP site, only to / on the virtual server. So, this is the scenario:

I have a site at http://www.kunibakai.nu. This is non-XOOPS at the moment. I am now creating a XOOPS version of this site, but since I would not want to release it without contents, which other people must provide, I put it in for instance http://www.kunibakai.nu/xoops/.

Then, when the site is finished and ready for release, I move the site to http://www.kunibakai.nu/, following hte steps in the migration quide. However, now I have potentially a lot of links in static contents pages that point to http://www.kunibakai.nu/xoops/images/image1.jpg which is not there anymore. So, I would like then to not manually edit all these links but automatically redirect every request for a file in

http://www.kunibakai.nu/xoops/

to the same file in

http://www.kunibakai.nu/


Say that the acctual path on this server is
/home/kunibakai.nu/public_html/, what would the rewrite rule be?

I have tried

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule   
(.*)/xoops/(.*)  $1/$2  [R]


But every time I try to access http://www.kunibakai.nu/xoops/, I get a 404 responce,

How do I do this?

The original site is written in html, so if you were to install XOOPS on the same root, it would not be visible unless you typed http://www.kunibakai.nu./index.php in the address bar. This allows you to create the site "behind" your current site, and when you are ready to go "live" with the XOOPS version, simply rename or remove the index.html page and the index.php will be the default.
This saves all the hassle of migrating and such.

That was simple, and effective. I'll use that.

However, I will have to find out how this redirect thing works. Everythig I throw at it seems to return a 404.

Hi,

If I have a file http://www.kunibakai.nu/index.html and the following .htaccess:


RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule   
^old.htmlindex.html [L]


Then, when I try to access http://www.kunibakai.nu/old.html, I should get http://www.kunibakai.nu/index.html in my web-browser, right?

Well, I am not. I get a

What is wrong? Please..
