    I am posting it here after spending over a day and reading apache and docs on the web.

    I am trying to test apache’s rewrite rules directive on. I have sub directory under public_html called wm, which contains test.php and a very simple .htaccess files; nothing fancy.

    # start .htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^wm(/)?$ test.php [NC,L]

    # end .htaccess

    // start test.php
    <?php
    echo ‘hello world’;
    ?>
    // end test.php

    I am expecting it to execute test.php and display ‘hello world’ when I type www.mydomain.co/wm. Instead, I get internet server error message. Also, when I try Business profile for mydomain.co provided by Network Solutions, I still get internal server error.

    I can’t quite put my finger on what’s missing.

    Hi Alex.

    It may be an issue with permission or ownership. Please posy your apache error logs which can be found with the help of the command tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    You can try this
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} ^domainname.com/$ [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} ^www.domainname.com/$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domainname.com/test.php/$1 [r=301,nc]
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    OR
    Code:
    # Redirect old file path to new file path
    RewriteEngine On
    Redirect /olddirectory/oldfile.html http://domainame.com/newdirectory/newfile.html
