I am hoping someone may be able to help me. I am not experienced enough with .htaccess and rewrite etc to understand what is needed.

I have the following already switched on in my Joomla global config.

  • Search Engine Friendly URLs Yes
  • Use URL Rewriting Yes
  • Add Suffix to URL YEs

Basically, I just want page link xyz.org/patents to redirect to zzz.org/patents

I have tried in cpanel but this doesn't seem to work because Joomla overides my cpanel redirect.

I can get xyz.org to redirect zzz.org but cannot do individual links which is what I require.

  • Can you show use what specific things you tried in cpanel? Oct 30, 2019 at 22:36

In your .htaccess file try this...

Redirect 301 "/patents" "http://www.zzz.org/patents"

Just add it at the bottom of the file. Sorry if formatting is weird, I'm on my cell.


Or try using the Joomla Redirect component, providing the xyz.org site is the one running Joomla. Set the expired url to /patents and the "new url" to https://zzz.org/patents.

There are third-party extensions that get in the way of this component doing its job, so it may not always work, but it's worth a try if you're having trouble making other ways work.
