Hi, I hope I'm asking this in the right forum? I've been searching for an answer to this problem for 5 days, and hopefully someone here knows the solution. Firstly, I'd like to provide the information that I too am a programmer, experienced in Perl, PHP, JS, Java, VRML, and a little C++, Python, and Delphi. I have a domain: example.com that I've created a full independent subdomain for which does not live under the root folder path of example.com This is a fully qualified subdomain with it's own dns and it's own file path from root that does not connect to the main domain example.com at all. I created the subdomain in WHM on my server backend. The subdomain is for example: subdomain.example.com Then, under the subdomain.example.com folder path (in CPanel) I created the subs of: sub1.subdomain.example.com sub2.subdomain.example.com Now, the root paths for subdomain.example.com is: /home/user/subdom/public_html/ The root path for the subs of subdomain.example.com is: /home/user/subdom/public_html/sub1/ is: /home/user/subdom/public_html/sub2/ These are browser reachable by both www and non-www versions. Google has issues with this big time. I've tried redirecting subdomain.example.com from www to non-www via .htaccess file located at /home/user/subdom/public_html/.htaccess and it works fine and does the redirect from www to non-www But, it forces the subs to their respective folders Vs being treated as sub.subdomain.example.com In other words, the subs go to: subdomain.example.com/sub1/ subdomain.example.com/sub2/ If I put 301 .htaccess redirects in for subdomain.example.com AND sub1.subdomain.example.com AND sub2.subdomain.example.com into the .htaccess file located at /home/user/subdom/public_html/.htaccess it creates an infinite loop If I place .htaccess 301 redirect for JUST subdomain.example.com at: /home/user/subdom/public_html/.htaccess it redirects www to non-www then placing the same for the subs located in their respective folders: /home/user/subdom/public_html/sub1/.htaccess /home/user/subdom/public_html/sub2/.htaccess it redirects the sub.subdomains from www to non-www BUT breaks the www to non-www redirect for subdomain.example.com Does anyone have any idea how the heck this is supposed to be done? Quite honestly, I'm going out of my mind trying to find the answer. At help would be very greatly appreciated! Thanks! Also, I like this forum and plan to stick around. I'm a good programmer and maybe I can help someone else when they need answers, too?
