I have a vhost that needs to redirect / to /app and I use following to accomplish that in vhost.conf:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/$ /app [R]

but it's giving me hard time since users get http://server.com//app address.

How to fix that?

  • I don't get double slashes when I put those rules in a blank vhost. – Jon Lin Jan 13 '13 at 12:22
  • Your rules seem OK. – Khaled Jan 13 '13 at 12:26

    Ok I found my problem. After redirecting, the application itself redirects the page to /login. So to avoid double redirect I simply redirect the root to correct page at the first place. RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^/$ /app/login.axvw [R] Thanks for all :) – user1492810 Jan 13 '13 at 12:36

It seems like after redirecting, the application itself redirects the page to /login.

So to avoid double redirect simply redirect the root / to the correct page and add this to the apache config in your /etc/apache/sites-available/vhost.conf:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/$ /app/login.axvw [R]
