Is there a trick I need to do in order to send every url from the old
site to the new one? While I'm in there, since my url pattern will be
staying the same, am I going to be able to keep that information as
of the redirect or do I have to redirect to the main page of my new
site? In other words can I go from
# Static content control
map.connect '/protected/*path', :controller => 'protected',
:action => 'render_static'
I use this to force any /protected URL to controller protected, action
static. I suspect you could (not tested)
Map.connect '/*path', :controller => 'redirect', action => 'redirect'
This map should put the whole URL in to params[:path], and call
controller redirect, method redirect for every one. You should be able
to construct an appropriate redirect from that.
Be sure to clear out /public so that rails gets the hits.
A simpler way might be to configure a redirect in your web server.
Apache and lighty can do this.
