I am attempting to redirect a subfolder on an apache2 server to the root of an entirely different domain, without including the path of the folder in the new domain.
So, in mysite.com/folder-1/folder-2 I have a .htaccess file like so:
RedirectMatch 301 / http://a-totally-different-site.com/
This sort of works, but includes the path in the redirect. So, when you visit mysite.com/folder-1/folder-2 it goes to a-totally-different-site.com/folder-1/folder-2
What I wish to happen, is for the subfolder to redirect to the root, so visiting mysite.com/folder-1/folder-2 will go to a-totally-different-site.com
Is this possible with .htaccess? I have tried a few different approaches I found, but none are working.
