    Hi,

    My old website using primary domain for example mydomain.com. I have create another new website using subdomain mydomain.com/v1

    Now I want to redirect my primary domain mydomain.com to mydomain.cm/v1 but I don't know how to do it.

    I'm not longer use the old website, should I remove the database so my primary domain can redirect to the new website?

    Kindly someone please advise me.

    Hello,

    Can you please try add following code in your .htaccess file.

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?YourDomain.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ blog [L]
    NOTE : change “YourDomain.com” to your domain name and blog to your sub-directory name

    Hello :)

    The examples you provided show that it's the same domain name but just a different subdirectory. You could simply ensure the contents of the subdirectory replace what currently exists in the public_html directory if you want it to appear as the default content.

    Thank you.
