.htaccess redirect

I would like for http://bookmarks.mydomain.com/ to redirect to http://www.mydomain.com/subdir/www/. I suspect that I can achieve this with an .htaccess file, but I am not smart enough to figure how. Can anyone help?

Wordpress Multiuser + htaccess + uploading images = 404 links...

So I'm running Wordpress 3.0 multiuser-enabled, but I can't get any of the images (which all upload) on any blog but the first to display correctly. The only solution I've found online hasn't worked for me, and I think it's an .htaccess problem. [more inside]

.htaccess or some other solution for altering a url across a domain?

I use a CMS which needs domain.com/index.php/template/filename in order to work. I used to have an htaccess file which would make domain.com/template/filename work fine (ie, it would load the correct page even without the index.php there). Dreamhost recently upgraded its software and the htaccess file no longer works. Is there a solution for this problem? [more inside]

Restricting access to directory... with conditions

How do I restrict access to a directory on my web site but still allow an audio streamer program to access the files? For instance, I want to put my mp3s in the audio directory but I want anyone going to mydomain.com/audio to not be able to download the tracks. The audio player being used is JW Player if that makes any difference. Thanks!

Why did my Wordpress .htaccess file change or become corrupt?

I have a Wordpress blog (v2.8) that sudden started displaying an Internal Server Error message. My host (Dreamhost) found a problem with my .htaccess file. I didn't do anything to cause the problem so I am wondering what happened and if it could happen again. I "fixed" it by replacing it with one that does nothing. I am also wondering what the file should contain. I know what its purpose is, but not much more than that. [more inside]

How do I redirect subfolder URLs to subdomain URLs?

Apologies for asking a question that I know will be answered already on the web, somewhere, but I can't find it. I'm having trouble writing a .htaccess ReWrite rule that will forward requests for all folders within a specific sub-folder to the same folders at a subdomain - so http://www.mydomain.com/hello/foo/bar/ will forward to http://hello.mydomain.com/foo/bar/ Any advice very gratefully received.

PHP and htaccess question

Why is Apache not listing any files in an open directory?

I've been helping my friend setup his personal website and we have been muddling through with plenty of help from google and a little bit of luck. But recently, I've been stumped by a persistent problem with a directory containing some files. Here's the scenario - my friend shares his RSS reading list as an OPML file. In addition, he wants to try and show how his reading list has evolved by archiving older versions of his reading list in a folder. He also wants to allow other people to browse this archive folder. It seemed like we should be able to achieve this using .htaccess files, but unfortunately it's not working like we expected. [more inside]
