Hi,
I am replacing a static site with a silverstripe one.
I have a static url http://www.mysite.com/products/product-one.html and the silverstripe page for this url is http://www.mysite.com/product-one/

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]
and
This: Redirect /products/product-one.html http://www.mysite.com/product-one/

When I enter the static url in the browser it redirects to http://www.mysite.com/products/product-one/ which cause all sort of page layout errors, why can't it redirect to http://www.mysite.com/product-one/ ?

Help anyone?

Thanks.

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

e.g.

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

Unless you tried that already...
