Directory look like root

Postby peaforabrain » Sat May 10, 2008 3:13 am

Is it posssible to use a website located in a directory, and make it look like its in the root. So all the files located in the folder will work fine, but redirect to the root.

e.g www.website.com/folder/ to www.website.com


thanks

Try the following in a .htaccess file in your document root
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/folder%{REQUEST_URI}/ -d
RewriteRule [^/]$ %{REQUEST_URI}/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /folder/$1 [QSA,L]
