On a domain running Drupal, I need to redirect a legacy URL, to I tried using Drupal's Global Redirect module, but it doesn't seem to be working; I'm guessing because /?group=example isn't a format Drupal expects.

Is there a Drupal module to handle this kind of redirect? Or how do I handle the redirect in an Apache vhost file instead?

You may be able to handle this with Apache's Redirect command, and certainly using RewriteRule. The Apache URL Rewriting Guide is a good source of information.

Thanks! Any chance you can elaborate, given the specifics of the URLs above? – Matt V. Jan 27 '11 at 22:24
If there are specific parts of the documentation that you have questions about I would be more than happy to help out. There's a mod_rewrite tutorial I was able to find that looks like it has some good examples. – larsks Jan 28 '11 at 1:06
Got it working, thanks again! – Matt V. Jan 28 '11 at 1:31
