Question Apache httpd.conf Redirect Subdomain

Hello all,

I'm trying to do this without using mod_rewrite in Apache. Basically, I want to be able to redirect to as well as my subdomain to

Here is my httpd.conf file:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/webmail
	Redirect permanent

#This works ->
Redirect permanent /webmail
I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong, can anyone offer advice?

Thanks in advance!

You must provide an absolute path in order for the Redirect directive to work. So I guess, the following should work:
Redirect permanent /

Awesome thanks. I can't believe I missed that. I tried it earlier but I think it was outside the virtualhost tags and so it was directing all traffic to the subdomain (obviously not what I wanted).

Thanks again!

It would be best if you start your own new thread with the topic that describes your problem and maybe refer to this thread in it if it's related.

Don't pull out the threads already given solution which is not yours.
If this tread doesn't help you then start a new thread with your problem described.


apache2, config, files, redirect, virtualhost
