Apache rewrite

Apache rewrite


I am trying to redirect a site to a new site but have a few issues:-

For example I want to redirect:

This is what I have configured in httpd.conf:-

CODE -->

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} dev.example.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://dev.othersite.com:9011/$1 [R=301,L] 

If I enter http://dev.example.com/ in the browser I get the Apache index.html page. I am not sure why?

If I enter http://dev.example.com/test in the browser I get page not found which I expect

If I enter http://dev.example.com/echo in the browser I get the expected page and the redirect works

If I enter http://dev.example.com/console in the browser I get "unable to connect" ... I expect that is because http://dev.othersite.com:9011/console returns a 403? Does that make sense?

Any help/pointers much appreciated! (I realise I haven't addressed the query_string yet but that can wait..)

Many thanks

RE: Apache rewrite

I fixed it:-

CODE -->

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} dev.example.com [NC]
RewriteRule (.*)$ http://dev.othersite.com:9011$1 [R=301,L]
