I want to redirect some of my old sites to my new sites. Some Googling suggest pasting this into my .htaccess:

redirect 301 /

However, the new site does not have the same structure as the old sites, so it's just pointing to a bunch of 404s. How can I configure my old sites to redirect to the root of my new site, regardless of path? eg: -> -> ->

Thank you!

You can try RedirectMatch 301 (.*)
