301 redirect and all my subdomains now crazy!

Reply Tue 6 Sep, 2005 08:48 am
I recently did the 301 redirect to get my non www. pages to www. pages...and it works fine...all the search engines are now updating to the www. version.

however a problem from this is now all my subdomains are directing to their respective directories..

for example:

hotshots.mysite.com redirects to www.mysite.com/hotshots

how on earth do I fix this?

My .htaccess code is for the redirect is:

Code:Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^.*mysticalwonders\.org [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysticalwonders.org/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.mysticalwonders\.org
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysticalwonders.org/$1 [R=301,L]

I don't think you get it. Your code says to redirect ANYTHING that is not www.yoursite.com

something.yoursite.com is NOT www.yoursite.com

You can add rules for each of your legitimate subdomains in series of conditions, or you can simply have apache house subdomain files outside of the domain's directory (this solution will likely need some server admin cooperation).

Thanks..i fixed the problem by reducing the code on the root .htaccess to

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain\.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

That doesn't look right to me. The code there would still not prevent a subdomain from redirecting under certain circumstances.

Actually it works..all my subdomains are back to normal... hotshots.mysite.com,subdomain.mysite.com,etc...

They're all no longer redirecting..
only mysite.com to www.mysite.com which is what i set out to do with the redirect.... hopefully in about 2 weeks google drops all the non www versions...
