Hello all,

I moved my site to register1 recently and some of my .htaccess rules don't quite work:
Code:
Options +MultiViews
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/forum$ /forum.php


On my old host (34sp.com) this rewrote requests to /forum to /forum.php as it should. But on my new host it goes to /forum/ which is a folder holding a phpBB installation.

Rewrites like this work OK when the forum dir is renamed but I'd like to keep things as they were on my old host.

Any thoughts?

thanks,
Ben

If your new host is using Apache 2, you can use the DirectorySlash directive. Otherwise, your best bet would be to rename the forum directory and add an additional RewriteRule to make it work like it did before.

Thanks for the quick reply Adam - easiest to do some renaming in this case.

34SP use Apache 1.3.33 but Register1 use v2 - this seems to be part of the reason for change

cheers,
Ben
