I have changed the domain

http://mechanical-engineering.in to http://mechanical-engg.com 

The board is in the url http://mechanical-engg.com/forum

The index page of mechanical-engg.com is using IP content and it takes the page to http://mechanical-en....php/index.html


Q1 Where should I redirect code and what should be the code...

I tried using cpanel redirtect

it worked for mechanical-engineering.in but not for / forum

additionally while changing address in Google webmaster it gave me the following error



Confirm that 301-redirects work properly
URLs from your old site should be redirected to your new site using permanent 301-redirect directives.
The old site redirects to mechanical-engg.com/index.php/index.html, which does not correspond to the new site you chose.

Please advise

This is my .htaccess file for my forum.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews +FollowSymlinks 
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.eastmidlandsstargazers.co.uk [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^eastmidlandsstargazers.co.uk [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} .*\.(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . /public/404.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

The 301 redirects will redirect any URL starting with eastmidlandsstargazers.co.uk to the same URL, only starting with eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk.

eastmidlandsstargazers.co.uk/index.php redirects to eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/index.php
eastmidlandsstargazers.co.uk/gallery/ redirects to eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/gallery

It was the cleanest way I could find to do it.

I have added the lines


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews +FollowSymlinks 
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.mechanical-engineering.in [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mechanical-engg.com/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mechanical-engineering.in [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mechanical-engg.com/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} .*\.(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . /public/404.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

 

it is  directing  http://mechanical-engineering.in/    but not  http://mechanical-engineering.in/forum/

 

I have .htaccess file in /forum directory also

  with 

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /forum/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /forum/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

If you want to make this simple, do the following.

Setup the old domain on your server/hosting, pointed to a different directory, not parked on the same account.

Then use a simple htaccess 301 re-direct in the root folder that the domain resolves to. 

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
redirect 301 / http://mechanical-engg.com

Be sure to remove all the other rewrite stuff you have tried.

In mechanical-engg.com   root directory 

there is one .htaceess file with

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews +FollowSymlinks 
RewriteEngine on


RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} .*\.(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . /public/404.php [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

Done as suggested ...   but now I am not able to login in admin panel too

 

http://mechanical-engg.com/forun/admin/

Sorry, we couldn't find that!

 

​Well, there's a clear reason for that; you spelt it wrong. If you go to the correct address, then the log-in box does appear. That might not explain all the other problems you're experiencing but at least there's an easy explanation for this one.

that was typing manually

​The final status 

 

After changing domain   and adding redirection - I am having the following two issues

 

Issues....
1. mechanical-engineering.in/forum/admin/   is redirecting  to   http://mechanical-engg.com/admin/   (instaed of /forum/admin)
mechanical-engineering.in/forum/   is redirecting to   home page  http://mechanical-engg.com
 
Rest all blog post and topics are redirecting correctly
 
2 Images missing including logo image  and it is still showing of old domain
 
Seeking guidance to resolve

try clearing your browser cache, I'm able to load your admincp just fine using the old or the new of http://mechanical-engg.com/forum/admin/

 

On the logo, use your easy logo changer, select your skin, and update the url properly and save.  Be sure your uploads path and url in your general configuration is also correct. Re-cache your skins if needed too.
