redirecting old asp to new pages on linux

Postby MikeD » Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:59 am


I recently joined the Canadian Webhosting family and moved my sites to a linux based server since I was finding I needed more of the PHP elements than the ASP elements I was using on my old server. I've had my sites up for a while, and have sites that have linked into specific pages of my one site using hte old .asp extension. Is there a way I can redirect incoming links to the old filename to the new .htm filename on the Linux server?

Thanks in advance for your advice,

Normally Apache (default webserver in Linux) doesn't support .asp extension. There are ways by which we re-configure Apache for .asp support, but this won't work 100%. Only if Apache can 'recognize' a .asp page, can it redirect the pages to say .htm files.

So in this case, such a redirection from .asp to other extensions is not possible. You may need to check with your developer and recode such entries to proper file extensions.
