    How to do a redirect?

    I went into my cpanel and selected the redirect option.

    I chose permanent 301 redirect and made it so that my domain would go from www.sachistudio.com/2007 to www.sachistudio.com/blog/2007

    I chose "Redirect with or without www" and wild card redirect.

    But it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    I've also done redirects with .htaccess and not cPanel. There's plenty of examples on the web of how to do it with .htaccess.

    I took tyssen's advice and just googled some stuff on using .htaccess file . it was pretty simple to do given my situation.

    web67- for whatever reason, cpanel can't execute the redirect properly so i guess it's all relative
