This seems to have been asked here but the answer does not work for me. Whatever method I use to redirect a directory, apache keeps appending the original URL to the new one.
I'm attempting to redirect with a .htaccess in a subdirectory (example name);
I want redirect to (for example);
but what I always end up with is
Given that there can be several sub-directories underneath documents/, the few methods I've got to work only work (such as RedirectMatch 301 .* /v2/newdirectory/newdocuments/) only works if the user hits the same directory as the .htaccess file, if they request a sub-directory, the redirect still functions but appends the URL and hits a 404. Is there some directive set in the conf that I need to override?
Thanks in advance!
