I have re-arranged a site with the Samber server ver 6.1 installed
some web pages extentions where changed from html to PHP
I need a htaccess file to redirect to the new pages

/test/test2.html page changed to /test/test2.php
If the URL is www.foobar/test/test2.html i need the test2.php to be displayed

I have tried
RedirectMatch permanent (.*)\.html$ $1.php
but it does not work

any help would be great.

Thanks Robotech Embarassed

Looks like we cannot use $1 like in Apache mod-rewrite.

The docu says:
Redirect all requests that match the regular-expression (<regex-match>) to the URL specified. So a fixed URL.

An idea is that you replace the .html files with :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://www.xxxx.xx/yyy.php" />

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<p>Loading <b>http://www.xxxx.xx/yyy.php</b>....</p>

<p>If the page does not load within a few seconds, please click here: <a href="http://www.xxxx.xx/yyy.php">click here</a></p>
