from a directory to a subdomain
« on: 06-03-2011, 20:42:46 »
Hello,

I must change my forum from a directory to a subdomain ( from mysite.com/forums to forum.mysite.com )

My forum is 8 years old and is very good optimized for trafic from Google , I'm afraid if I change will I lose all my Google positions.

I will make a change in httaccess :

RedirectPermanent /forums htttp://forums.mysite.com

Is it Ok , should i make something else ?

Moving is never a good idea.

RewriteRule forums/(.*)? http://forums.mysite.com/$1

is probably a better rule to use as it will pass all urls, not just the homepage.
