I am replacing a static site with a silverstripe one.
I have a static url and the silverstripe page for this url is

the file structure on the backend of the silverstripe cms is /products/product-one/

I have tried a 2 redirect methods:

This: RewriteRule ^products/product-one.html product-one [R=301,NC,L]
This: Redirect /products/product-one.html

When I enter the static url in the browser it redirects to which cause all sort of page layout errors, why can't it redirect to ?

Help anyone?

Your first attempt ought to do it, you just need to make sure that line immediately follows the RewriteBase line.


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^products/product-one.html product-one [R=301,NC,L] 

Unless you tried that already...
