    Can someone please tell me how to Redirect a 404 Page into a new URL? My websites categories has been moved into a new url structures from domain.com/category into domain.com/category/subcat
    as most of my post are already indexed in google as domain.com/category and when i click the link its already 404. I want to redirect it into domain.com/category/subcat

    My website is on Wordpress and Hosted on Digital Ocean and i don't know how to redirect. Thanks in advance

    You should be able to find a plugin that lets you manually 301 urls.

    301 the old url to the new one.

    You can do it with a plugin. I think the plugin changes your .htaccess for the 301.

    Wordpress has a variety of free plug ins. The plug in which I use called REDIRECT. Search this and install it and through this you can fix your problem.
