Description of Problem:
I changed the homepage alias and now I can't get redirect 301 working for the old alias. After the redirect rule is met it moves further to the www.sitename.ru/newailias?q=oldalias URL and reports about page loading problem. Questions:
- Why the redirect to the new alias doesn't work
- Why 'www' prefix is added
- I don't understand why friendly URLs are case sensitive while I have [L,QSA,NC] in the appropriate section.
Any help is appreciated. I am attaching my htaccess file.
P.S. Old alias is 'nachalo', new alias is 'uslugi'.
