I want to redirect to, but it is not redirecting. My rewrite rule is:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

Redirecting to is working fine. Should I be required to add another RewriteRule or RewriteCond to include cgi-bin (because of ScriptAlias or something)?

I had to put .htaccess inside cgi-bin folder as well to solve this problem.
