Redirecting to new domain

Unread postby Stefan_o » Tue Nov 08, 2016 11:18 am

We have a new domain. At the same time I'm updating from webhelp pp2 to pp3. Since the old domain and manual still gets a lot of traffic I want to redirect the visitors to the corresponding page in the new manual at the same site. So I want users to get redirected from:

old.com/manual/index.htm?welcome.htm

to

new.com/manual/?hmhelp=welcome.html (embedded in wordpress)

Is there a quick and simple way to do this?

Or is my only option to go inte to .htaccess and type in the addresses manually? And if I do that, is the format above the correct one?

Hi Stefan,

This needs to be done on the server with redirecting and remapping. See this Apache page for getting started:
