Subject [users@httpd] New to list - Redirect, Alias or Rewrite?? Very confused...
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 19:59:25 GMT

Hi all,
I am attempting to have the Apache Server 2.0 handle the following request
for me:

When a visitor visits App/, I would like them
to be automatically redirected to App/

Both OLD and NEW Web App folders live in the same doc root and are at the
same level in the folder tree - ie right off of root.

I have tried both Alias commands and Redirect commands and nothing seems to
work. I have restarted Apache on each change.

What is the best way to accomplish this and is there something I am
missing. I am using both the O'Reilly Apache Cookbook and the
for examples and they all sound similar. From what I have read, Alias seems
to be for the purpose of referencing files outside of the doc root, this is
not the case for me. Redirect seems to be for redirecting to  different
server - also not the case.

Any tips would be awesome.
