I'm trying to get redirects to work within a domain name for an S3-hosted static website. That is, if I point mydomain.com/foo, I want it to redirect to mydomain.com; this should basically mirror mydomain.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/foo being redirected to mydomain.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com. What's happening right now is mydomain.com/foo gets redirected to mydomain.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/.
I have an S3 bucket named in line with Amazon docs in order to ensure resources are redirected appropriately. I also have CloudFront configured to point to the S3 website endpoint (mydomain.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com), as well as the domain set up in "Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs)".
In Route53, I've created an A record to point to the CloudFront's d123456789.cloudfront.net domain name. So, right now going to mydomain.com works just fine; however, trying to go to a resource that would cause a redirect gets me back to the ugly S3 name.
How can I keep CloudFront in the mix but get friendly redirection behavior that keeps my domain name front and center?
Edit 2: To clarify, redirecting foo.com/update to foo.com/index.html is the minimal case; ideally I'd like to be able to redirect any resource under foo.com/ to foo.com/index.html, which is why I was pursuing the redirect rules solution.
