Weird RewriteRule in site purchased via Flippa

7 replies
Hi Guys,

We just purchased a site from flippa, and are in the process of setting it up on our own servers.

At the bottom of the .htaccess file we have:

<Files ~ "^\.(htaccess|htpasswd)$">
deny from all
</Files>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.directoryofglendale\.com)(:80)? [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://directoryofglendale.com/$1 [R=301,L]
order deny,allow


Now the URL in the above command is NOT for our site, nor is it the domain which we purchased along with the site.

Currently the site is showing an internal server error, so just trouble shooting some files etc, but had a feeling that the above was a little odd??

Can anyone advise?

Thanks in advance guys
