I installed WordPress in my root directory http://coinauctionshelp.com. I want to redirect pages in the root to the new wordpress pages using an .htaccess file like this

301 redirect

http://coinauctionshelp.com/us-coin-values/ 

When I tried to do that I got a 500 internal server error so is there a quick fix for this?

  • Have you tested after clearing the cache or from another browser or using an incognito window (Chrome) or private (FF)? Try a redirect trace to see what's happening with the 301.

Here's the trace results.

When I create a .htaccess in my root directory to redirect a page in the root to a page in the wordpress directory then it changes the .htaccess of the wordpress. So this is what I have so far.

I can fix the 500 by eliminating my .htaccess and rebuilding the .htaccess of my wordpress.
