Hi I have just launched a new website using SS and have amended the .htaccess file to point users who have bookmarked some of the old website pages to go to the 'page not found' page within the SS site.

However, when i click onto and 'old' url from the previous site (it had .php page types), I am given the 1and1 hosting version of their 404 page.

My .htaccess file is below:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /cms

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
Options FollowSymLinks
ErrorDocument 400
ErrorDocument 404

Should I be doing something differnt? I would prefer users to go to the custom pages I have made which contain detailed explanation of where to go for certain items.

Looking forward to your help guys!
