Domainname changes permanent redirect on the same installation htaccess settings?


Recommended Posts


i've a installation where the client have to change the domainname on a existing installation.

beside the negative SEO effects how to get it proper done with PW?

i've set $config->httpHosts and Host to the according domains the PW accept both.

but all links should only use the new main domainname like:

https://olddomainname.com    -> redirected to https://newdomainname.com

how to implement it via htaccess right so that i don't blow it up. Subpages dont change only the hostname?

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://newdomainname.com/$1 [R=301,L]

isn't working?

Pagepathhistory and jumplinks are installed to catch 404 or other stuff.

Kind regards mr-fan

found a solution ....maybe someone yould use it sometimes...

setup only the right HOST under the config.php nothing else

 * Installer: HTTP Hosts Whitelist
$config->httpHosts = array('newdomain.com');

in the htacess i've setup a additonal redirect to the existing force https and redirect www to nonwww for catching all oldomain.com calls to redirect to newdomain.com - all links should be working perfect after that switch under the new domain...the rest is fixing seo mess that comes with domain url chaning 😉

kind regards mr-fan

  # 9. If you only want to allow HTTPS, uncomment the RewriteCond and RewriteRule lines below.
  # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
  RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} olddomain.com$ [NC]
  RewriteRule (.*) https://newdomain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\. [NC]
  RewriteRule (.*) https://newdomain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
