Simple Problem - sub.domain.com rewrite to domain.com/sub

Postby Minty » Sun Jul 13, 2008 5:25 am

Hello, I'm having trouble with a relatively simple (and, I expect, common) problem rewriting (i.e.) http://sub.domain.com/whatever to http://domain.com/sub/whatever.

I tried something like:

Code: Select all
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^sub\..*$
RewriteRule (.*) domain.com/sub/$1


However this alters the visble URL (the one in the address bar) which I'd like to keep as sub.domain.com/whatever...

Is this possible?

Any help appreciated :)

With no mod_rewrite, do you see the same page when you go to example.com and sub.example.com?

Try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

# Add missing trailing slashes.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^sub\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/sub%{REQUEST_URI}/ -d
RewriteRule [^/]$ %{REQUEST_URI}/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} ^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^sub\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /sub/$1 [QSA,L]
