Plain text please...

mod_rewrite is probably a bit of an overkill for what you want to do -
especially if you find the docs confusing. All you really need is a
Redirect directive, e.g.:

Prerequisite: and should both lead to a
virtual host on your server (i.e. if they are separate IPs, you should
be listening to both IPs. If they resolve to the same IP, you should
have a name-based virtual host set up for each - let's assume this is
what you're doing).

So your config is something like this:


	Redirect /

	... rest of config
