Subject [users@httpd] mod_rewrite: moved directory
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2009 12:04:13 GMT

  Hi,

  I moved one directory one level up in the hierarchy of web pages,
let's say:

    from: http://www.example.com/parent/child/
    to:   http://www.example.com/child/

  I try to use mod_rewrite to handle this move, and redirect users
for a while to the new location.  I've read the URL Rewriting Guide
at <http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html>, from
which I thought the following should handle this case:

    RewriteEngine  on
    RewriteRule    ^/parent/child(.*) /child$1 [R]

  But it does not.  When I try to access the old location, I simlpy
get a 404.

  Is there a way to handle this problem?  With mod_rewrite or any
other "standard" module.

  Regards,
