WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I am a new user to webfaction. I am having trouble redirecting a new domain to an existing website that I have. I have followed the directions in the documentation for Redirecting using a static/CGI/PHP. I created the new website for the new domain and added a new app called redirect. I had to create a file in the ../redirect directory for the .htaccess and I deleted the index file. I modified the .htaccess file to reflect the code that was in the documentation, but when I go to my new domain it continues to point to the Webfaction: Coming Soon page.

I would appreciate if anyone had any ideas on what I might be doing wrong.

Exactly what path did you put the .htaccess file in? You can edit your username and just user 'username' and the app name and call it 'appname' before posting it here, but we need to know the full path. Also what exactly did you put in the .htaccess file. You can edit any domains and use 'example.com'.

If you want us to check your current setup send us a support ticket.
