Simple 301 Redirects
Won't redirect from cgi-bin (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm having difficulty getting urls for press releases that used to be in our cgi-bin folder to redirect.

    REQUEST
    /cgi-bin/pressrel?12345678

    DESTINATION (i've tried both)
    /releases/name-of-release/
    or
    http://www.mydomain.com/releases/name-of-release/

    I get an error message: "NOT FOUND: The requested URL /cgi-bin/pressrel was not found on this server."

    Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Thank you

    Hello,
    Your issue may be due to your web host's configuration. They may be automatically refusing certain requests to the cgi-bin for security purposes, or it may be that your root-level .htaccess file isn't allowed to rewrite cgi-bin requests. Both those suggestions are merely theoretical--I've been able to rewrite similar requests in testing with my web host.

    I'm sorry to say that I think to resolve this problem you'll have to contact your web host for more details.
