  • Hi,

    I read a few posts about redirecting a domain to a specific page on a ModX website via the htaccess. I've tried a few different options but nothing seems to work, maybe I placed the rewrites in the wrong order(?). This is what I tried so far, the redirect lines start at line 49 ('# UK version'):

    # MODX supports Friendly URLs via this .htaccess file. You must serve web
    # pages via Apache with mod_rewrite to use this functionality, and you must
    # change the file name from ht.access to .htaccess.
    #
    # Make sure RewriteBase points to the directory where you installed MODX.
    RewriteRule ^.*[-/]s(\d+)-.*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^s(\d+)-.*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^o(\d+)[-/].*[-/]s(\d+)-.*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$1-$2&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^o(\d+)[-/]s(\d+)[-/].*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$1-$2&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^s(\d+)[-/].*[-/]o(\d+)[-/].*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$2-$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^s(\d+)[-/]o(\d+)[-/].*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$2-$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    RewriteRule ^.*[-/]s(\d+)[-/]o(\d+)[-/].*$ menusl/index\.php?id=$2-$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

    # If your server is not already configured as such, the following directive
    # should be uncommented in order to set PHP's register_globals option to OFF.
    # This closes a major security hole that is abused by most XSS (cross-site
    # scripting) attacks. For more information: http://php.net/register_globals
    #
    # To verify that this option has been set to OFF, open the Manager and choose
    # Reports -> System Info and then click the phpinfo() link. Do a Find on Page
    # for "register_globals". The Local Value should be OFF. If the Master Value
    # is OFF then you do not need this directive here.

    # Your server does not allow PHP directives to be set via .htaccess. In that
    # case you must make this change in your php.ini file instead. If you are
    # using a commercial web host, contact the administrators for assistance in
    # doing this. Not all servers allow local php.ini files, and they should
    # include all PHP configurations (not just this one), or you will effectively
    # reset everything to PHP defaults. Consult www.php.net for more detailed
    # information about setting PHP directives.

    # The following directives stop screen flicker in IE on CSS rollovers. If
    # needed, un-comment the following rules. When they're in place, you may have
    # to do a force-refresh in order to see changes in your designs.

      • Thanks for your reply but sadly this doesn't work either...

        • Sorry, it needs to go just below the rewrite base line.

          Here's a handy htaccess tester you can use: https://htaccess.madewithlove.be/. It will show you exactly what's happening as the URL is processed.

          BTW, I don't think the lines at the top are doing anything because the rewrite engine is not turned on at that point.
