I have installed WordPress in a subdirectory of my domain but the entry page is still at that address
What I need to do is redirect the old html website pages in the root directory eg: http://www.example.com/about.htm to the new site
Usually I would add a 301 redirect to the root directory eg:
redirect 301 /jewellery.htm http://example.com
However this breaks the permalinks in wordpress.
The WordPress htaccess file is in the subdirectory not the root. Is it possible to edit this document to affect files in the directory above it something like
redirect 301 ../jewellery.htm http://example.com
Or is there another way?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
