I am not sure if this is the best place to post this question but here goes anyways.
I have recently built a new website using Apache and PHP based extensions. My old website was the .aspx extension. We have recently transferred our old site to the new site and I am now finding out that all of the pages listed in the search engines ending with .aspx are coming up with errors because it does not match the new website links. I am not totally familiar with 301 redirects I am familiar with the .htaccess file.
What I'm looking for is some help on how to make it so when somebody clicks on one of the old search engine links from the older domain that will transfer to the newer domains index page. Please note that the actual website name has stayed the same it's just the link.aspx or whatever the older link was doesn't match to the new site. I am not sure whether I'm supposed to be putting coding in the current websites HT access file or the older sites HT access file.
Basically at this point what am looking to do is if anybody clicks on any one of the older links ending in .aspx, that they will be transferred to the home page which is the index file of the new and current website. Here is an example of a bad link out there:
The older website, a specific link was http://www.powercallsirens.com/6adam.aspx
. When somebody clicks on that link, they get a search engine error because that link does not exist anymore. The actual link to that page on the new website is http://www.powercallsirens.com/produ...hp?pid717.html
Can anyone offer any assistance on the best way to do this. Right now if you do a Google search or a web search engine search there are dozens of pages with our old links on their with which does not lead anywhere but to an error page. I'm looking for when somebody clicks on one of those older links from a search engine that will go to the default index page of the current website listing.
Thanks for any assistance that you may be able to offer I do appreciate it very much.
