Moving Vanilla to a new folder and using htacess to redirect audience
Dear friends, I would need a little help from the experts.
My old forum version is located at folder "forum2018" and I'm moving it to other folder "v01", both are located just under the www root folder.
Point is a lot of "old" links were sent out and obviosly I wouldn't like to loose audience with 404 error page.
I thought using htaccess to redirect from http://cegvforum.com/forum2018/ to http://cegvforum.com/v01/ but I'm not sure if I should alter only the root's folder htacess file and/or htaccess inside vanilla's root folder.
I got some htaccess rewritecond examples but none worked so far. Another alternative would be addressing the issue within 404 error page but I guess htaccess would do the trick.
byw, we use short links in our setup.
Any help would be appreciated.
