How to redirect - server is ATS/3.1.1-unstable

Hope this is the right place for this question. :slight_smile:

I have just rebuilt a site for a client, and amalgamated a couple of pages. I intended to do a 301 redirect via .htaccess for the defunct pages, but when I came to upload the files, I found the server isn’t running Apache. (I should probably have checked that before, but it didn’t occur to me to look.) The server is apparently ATS/3.1.1-unstable, which I’ve never heard of and I can’t find any useful information about it.

My question is, basically, how can I do the redirect on this server?

ATS is apache traffic server ( a caching proxy)
I’m not familiar with it, but you may be able to use htaccess on the upstream content servers feeding it

Thanks for that. The site is using shared hosting, and I don’t have access to anything apart from the FTP account for the site. The files are uploaded to a folder called htdocs - and that’s the limit of my knowledge. :confused:

In that case they are likely using ATS in front of apache as an accelerator. If you have tried .htaccess and it has no effect, and the original pages are php, you could perform the 301 using the header function.

The original pages, like the new ones, are static HTML. I tried using .htaccess but that seems to cause the site to redirect to the hosting company.

I came across this on another thread:

Does this mean I can re-instate the “dead” pages without any content and just add <meta http-equiv=“refresh” content=“0; url={new URL}”> in the header to achieve the re-direct? Do I need to use a full URL or can I just use the new page?
