Need wildcard mod_rewrite
I have used cpanel for this initially, but I find that for a simple 301 redirect for one file the coding is too complex and ultimately doesn't work anyways. Even the wildcard setting does not work, so I have always felt comfortable doing my own mods and besides it's even better for SEO.
I have experimented with many different mods that should work but don't such as:
Redirect 301 /my_directory/ homepage URL
RedirectMatch 301 /my_directory(.*) /$1
RedirectMatch 301 ^/my_directory/(.*)$homepage URL/$1
Now keep in mind I do have an .htaccess file in this top directory and there was a suggestion in another forum to place this mod in this file while doing a standard 301 redirect in the root directory:
This does not work either.
RewriteRule ^my_directory/(.*)$ /$1 [R=301,NC,L]
There must be somebody in this community that has done this sucessfull wildcard redirect for a top directory.
