I am trying to forward all requests to a particular hostname to a specific URL.

My virtual host entry looks like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    RedirectPermanent /

This works for anyone going to I am trying to add an error handler:

ErrorDocument 404

so that any and all requests go to the same server. The problem is that if I request then the end result is a request to I tried setting the error document to but it ignored the ? and still redirected to /path/foo

How do I prevent the path from being added to the error URL?

Maybe you just need RedirectMatch permanent ^ instead of RedirectPermanent or ErrorDocument.
