I'm trying some 301 redirects in .htaccess.

I'm trying to redirect something like this:




but I'm getting the following output


There are many different subdirectories under wines, so I need those to be wildcarded. I hope that makes sense.

Please see my .htaccess below. Thanks for any help!

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^creek.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://creek.com/$1 [L,R=301]

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond $1 !\.(gif|jpe?g|png)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

RedirectMatch 301 ^/wines/(.*)/(.*)$ http://creek.com/shop/product/$1

    Your url goes first through the rewrite than through redirect (and you can't change the order). Convert the redirect into a rewrite and place it before the other redirect rules. – Dan May 16 '15 at 13:15

@Dan is right.

You should convert your RedirectMatch into a Rewrite and place it before your <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> block :

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/wines/(.*)/(.*)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://creek.com/shop/product/$1 [L,R=301]
