    Hellos,

    I'm currently trying to work on stuffing but the following .htaccess code does not work on hostgator, but works on my locally hosted xampp webserver.

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule image.jpg http://www.google.com [L,R=301]
    On the localhost server, it works correctly and displays a broken img. But on hostgator, it still loads the image. Am I missing out on something? Thanks!

    Yeah, I've noticed that the way the pattern gets matched varies from server to server. This happens in a way that I've been too lazy to actually figure out.. so I usually just mess with it until it starts working. :rolleyes:

    Try something like this maybe:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule .*/image.jpg$ http://www.google.com [L,R=301]
