I've moved the files on my server to a new directory and would like to 301 redirect all the requests to the files in the new directory.
Say I have:
Assuming you're using a server with mod_rewrite, In your root create a file named ".htaccess" and insert the following contents:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^test/(.*) http://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L] </IfModule>
Note that this will rewrite every single file in the test directory to the domain you inserted.
If you only want to redirect .php files use:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^test/(.*).php http://domain.com/$1.php [R=301,L] </IfModule>
NOTES: Don't forget to change the domain.com to your domain name, also this type of redirect will make a 301 redirect that is usefull for redirecting PERMANENTLY the url of a file (This will help search engines updating your links).
