Apache Tips : How to force redirect old domain to new domain

Change the definition of Override in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
    AllowOverride All

Then create the following .htaccess into the DocumentRoot.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mesinfotostat.dev.namran.net [NC]
RewriteRule ^ http://fotostatbaru.dev.namran.net%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

so. it got change and redirected automatically .. to new domain.
if user happened to access it via the old domain.

This is important when some session data is stored within the domain name.

    This was helpful. Summary: if the /etc/hosts file is not well-formed, the python script doesn’t handle it well. In my case, somehow a long entry that was commented out got “line wrapped”, leaving some uncommented garbage on the next line. Fixing the hosts file or adding the above patch “worked”. It seems that some complaint to the user should be generated in such a case, though.
