I am trying to get a .htaccess (to redirect non-www to www) file to work on my GoDaddy web server. I created a .htaccess file and uploaded it to my root directory. When I load it directly into the “/”, it gives a 500 server error.
So I created a .htacess directory (in the root), and tried loading it there. It does not work, i.e., my website is visible, but no redirect. Note: I waited an hour for the server to cache=nothing.
Here is the code I Used:
Options +FollowSymLinks (I tried with and without this line)
