htaccess redirect to wordpress.com
I currently have access to an Apache webserver where in a folder are the content/webpages of an old Internet-site.
The main/original URL has been relinked already to the WordPress.com-site.
I have not installed WordPress on a server; I use the online WordPress.com environment for displaying and editing.
However, I don’t want to delete all the content/directory immediately on the webserver, and am wondering if by means of a .htaccess file this directory can be rerouted to the WordPress-environment.
If htaccess is not the perfect way, which is? And how do I do this?
Which full statement do I have to use – and place this file in the root of the webserver?
If you want the content on your old web server – if you have a WordPress.ORG install – Export the old blog and import it to your blog here at WordPress.COM – Seems to me there is a check box to ask the pictures to be moved also –
If your old site is a plain html site then you have a bunch of copy and pasting to do
You domain name can be mapped to your blog here once you get the content moved: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/
The old site is just content and some folders on a FTP-server.
This need not to be seen – and indexed – anymore.
I can delete the content, but would like to “play save” for the moment and redirect the FTP-folder of the old site – and ‘old links’ – to the main wordpress.com blog/site.
redirect the FTP-folder of the old site – and ‘old links’ – to the main wordpress.com blog/site
There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
Basically for now is just the folder to the wordpress.com blog-environment.
At a later moment the ‘old links’ can be redirected.
How do I do that in a statement (like .htaccess ??) and where do I put this file (the root of the FTP-server, or the root of the directory, or else)
