As far as the .htaccess file is concerned, I had some trouble. So I did some Googling about it, and found some info. However, I still can't get it to work, when I do I get this error:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) Server at www.mysite.com Port 80
I tried the following contents:
I tried every possible combination with single and double fwd slashes, with/without the "html" (root) directory, and with "www" as I seen it in the "Apache HTTP server tutorial" about .htaccess files. I tried putting the "www/" in front of "/http/", and without. I still get this error as long as the file is in the directory.
Now I will explore option 2.
