How to redirect or block access to a folder that points to your subdomain ?

  • Alright, i figure this out but don’t know if this is the correct way to do it. It does what I wanted for now. It blocks access to the folder that is used by the subdomain.

    Inserted this code at the top of index.php file.

    <?php
    $_SERVER[HTTP_HOST] = strtolower($_SERVER[HTTP_HOST]);
    if($_SERVER[HTTP_HOST]!== “blog.nepalvista.com”) {
    ?>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Oops, that’s the wrong address for this blog!</title>
    <meta name=”robots” content=”nofollow,noindex”>
    </head>
    <div>
    <center>
    Then I gave some message here about the address of my blog but have not provided any links. Users will copy paste the address to their browser to view the site. If I have a link here, i fear search engines will follow… i don’t know if that’s good even with a rel=”nofollow” tag.
    </center>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>
    <?php
    exit();
    }
    ?>
    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);
    ?>

    This has solved my problem, but I don’t know if this is the way to do correctly.

    I would love your suggestions and further help. Instead of showing messages to users, should i automatically redirect them to the the blog address (which is the subdomain address blog.nepalvista.com) Will automatic redirection hurt search engines ?

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions, etc.

    WordPress rocks! and i hope future developments makes wordpress blogs free from duplicate contents!!!

    thak you thank you thank and
