Subject Re: [users@httpd] virtual host double slash effect, need solution
Date Sun, 16 Jul 2017 19:32:50 GMT
Redirect is simpler as you can see, it redirects everything, it has a
regex version called RedirectMatch. Both are provided by mod_alias.

RewriteRule is for more complex things, yes it can redirect too, but
as you have seen yourself, the most simple thing can bring confusion.
RewriteRute is provided by mod_rewrite and should be used only when
there is no simpler option for the sake of simplicity.

The rule of thumb is to go for simpler configuration directives
whenever possible, and a simple redirection like that in virtualhost
is a task perfect for Redirect.
