I have a client whose http://www.clientdomain.org site runs on Server X, managed by their IT department. I believe Server X is a Windows Server, but I don’t know for sure.
The WordPress Multi-site installation we’re managing is on a Linux server (Server Y) hosted someplace else entirely and the specific sub-site we have the issue with is mapped to subdomain.clientdomain.org.
The client used to have two pages for their PR stuff,
Now they have
“Oh,” I said brightly, not realizing what a TREMENDOUS pain this is with Multi-site, “We’ll just set up some 301 redirects in your .htaccess file.”
Well, I haven’t been able to figure out how to do that. Read a few things here in the forums and elsewhere online, but nothing worked. I suspect that having the main domain actually on a different DNS doesn’t help at all, but don’t know enough about it to be sure.
In any case I don’t need regex or anything fancy, just for those two URLs to point to that one new page.
Can anyone here help? I am reluctant to install plugins because there’s a lot of custom code on this site and I’d rather keep potential conflicts to a minimum, but I’m willing to try anything with a good chance of working.
