Hello and thanks in advance for any help.

I'm working on a 301 redirect for a client and can't seem to get the redirect to work sitewide. It's currently only redirecting the index page and I can't figure out how to get it to work for all the pages on the site without setting up individual redirects for each page on the site.

Here is what cPanel put in the htaccess file after adding the redirect with the option for No Redirect for www.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^sitename.com$
RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/www\.sitename\.com" [R=301,L]

I tried using the wildcard redirect but got an infinite loop error. There is some other stuff in the htaccess file, but I can't figure out if it's something in there, or some other problem.

I'm doing my best to be careful, as it's an important clients site, but after a couple hours of reading forums, I'm no closer to a solution. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

Please provide the full contents of the current .htaccess file in order to determine if those parts are impacting this working.

Thanks!
