www. rewrite


Recommended Posts


I have a site running PW 2.8. I moved it to a new server and (possibly foolishly) did the 2.8 upgrade at the same time.


Now, all the pages are no longer using the www prefix which has screwed with search engine indexing somewhat. I don't know if it's the way the host file was created on the server or because i have over written the htaccess file.


I though that on the .htaccess file I could uncomment the following two lines to prepend www but when i do this i'm getting a 500 error:

  # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # 13. OPTIONAL: Redirect users to the 'www.' version of the site (uncomment to enable).
  # For example: http://processwire.com/ would be redirected to http://www.processwire.com/
  # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  # RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
  # RewriteRule ^ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]


Any advice please?
