Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to redirect www.example.com/this/ or example.com/this/ to that.example.com

At the moment in my .htaccess file I have:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond ${HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?example\.com/this$
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://that.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

However this is not working for me.

Apache mod_alias Redirect is much more simple, you could try something like this:

Redirect /this http://that.example.com/

%HTTP_HOST will only match the hostname (www.example.com). You'll also need to match on %REQUEST_URI, then use that to insert into the rule

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}  !^/(.*)$
