I'm sure this is simple but I just can't see it. I've been bashing my head against the wall for over an hour now. I need a rewriterule to permanently move an entire website, except for the pages living under one directory. Permanently moving an entire web site is trivial:
RewriteRule .*$ http://www.newdomain.com [NC,R=301,L]
However, all requests for pages under one single subdir should not be redirected. I.e.:
should be redirected to www.newdomain.com, but requests like
should not be redirected.
So how do I plonk an exception into my rewriterule to leave all requests for pages living in or under the subdir "safethisoldstuff" alone?
