I serve large professional documents, and sometimes links to them end up on social media. No big deal, but I think people clicking on them from tose social media sites don't have a clue. They think they're being directed to small page, when in fact they are downloading megabytes of pdf -- myfile.pdf. So what I've started to do is to redirect requests from social media to an archive page, where they can see specifically what document they are trying to get, and recognize its size before they ask for it. No problem, right? I just do
I'm using a .htaccess file to redirect only example.com/script-dir/index.php (with www and without) to example.com/index.php, but it also redirects example.com/script-dir/index.php?page=faq and other pages.
What should I do to redirect only that single page?
I'm having trouble getting a Redirect to work. I'm doing a remake of an old site that I did over 10 years ago and I'm going to need to do a lot of redirects once I change over, but I wanted to test it out to make sure I know what I'm doing before I get rid of the old site. My current old site is www.antstuff.net. I will be keeping the same domain when I change, but it's current url naming system is different from the program I use now (Joomla). It's current url syntax goes like: www.antstuff.net/html/ant_farm.html Whereas the remade Joomla site will simply be www.antstuff.net/ant-farms . I don't want to lose all of my inbound links so I'll need to redirect every old page to the new pages right?I wanted to test it first to see if I could get a redirect to work so I added a line to my .htaccess just to try and redirect from one page to another.
Nothing happens. It does not redirect to a different page at all.Also, there is a bunch of other crap in my .htaccess file that has built up over the years. Could that mess anything up?
Update: Interesting thing happened. When I went to submit this post, I got an error that said that there is a redirect in the url that I entered, please use the destination url instead. So I removed the line of code from my .htaccess before submitting. Nevertheless, nothing happens when visit that particular page. It's supposed to transfer me to the other page right?
Issue: Upgraded to Apache 2.4.4 and Tomcat 7.0.33. Accessing the website via HTTPS produces "Object not found" error. The error logs (server,tomcat,apache) show no errors. It was working with Apache 2.2

We are redoing our website and we have removed / renamed a few old pages. I was wondering if I can do 301 redirect for removed / renamed pages without having to actually create them? To explain with an example:
On old website : www.domain.com/mypage.php On new website: www.domain.com/mynewpage.php
I created a 301 redirect in .htaccess redirecting mypage.php to www.domain.com/mynewpage.php without physically creating "mypage.php" file. When I access "www.domain.com/mypage.php", I get a 404 page not found error. When I create a blank "mypage.php", the redirection works fine.
Is it possible to do a 301-redirect without having to create old files ?
One site just linked to my website with incorrect URL as URL.. want to correct this by redirecting the URL to URL.... Therefore, I add the following line in my .htaccess, as follows: Redirect 301 /aor/%e2%80%9d URL...

I am having a little trouble getting a reverse proxy redirect to work. I have a Linux server running Apache2. I have installed SABnzbd+, Sickbeard, Couchpotato & Headphones onto this device. I want to access SABnzbd+, Sickbeard, Couchpotato & Headphones from the outside world (via a DYNDNS name).
I know that I could just forward the ports through the router, but I don't want all the extra ports opened. I was told that I can have Apache to do a revers proxy, but I can't get it to work. I basically want to be able to do type myname.dyndns.org/sickbeard instead of typing in myname.dyndns.org:8081.
I am trying to find out if redirecting an https URL to an http URL will still provide the security of the original https? Should the page information for the redirected http page show it as being unencrypted or shouldn't it have the same encryption as the original https?
