Subject [users@httpd] redirect using .htaccess file
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2003 17:17:40 GMT
I have an odd problem . . .

A customer wanted to use a splash page as the entry into his site 
( The first 'real' page is in a subdirectory 
(www.domain.dom/catalog/index.html). Now he's decided he doesn't want 
the splash page. What I'd like to do is redirect requests from to However, 
I want to do this in a way that is search engine friendly as possible.

I'm thinking about using .htaccess redirect, but can't seem to make it 
work. Is it any more complicated that putting something like following 
line into a .htaccess file:

Redirect permanent /index.html

I've studied the docs and tried a number of variations on this theme, 
but none seem to work. Any help much appreciated.
