Question

301 Redirect .zip files

Ubuntu LEMP 16.04

I can’t for the life of me figure this out. I’m trying to redirect a .zip file to a page on a new domain. I tried using the htaccess file but It doesn’t seem to be working.

The Idea Is to get

111.111.11.11/myold.zip

To redirect to a page on my actual site

https://newdomainpage.com/sample-page

My latest attempt

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
//301 Redirect Old File
Redirect 301 /myold.zip https://newdomainpage.com/sample-page
RewriteRule /myold.zip)$ https://newdomainpage.com/sample-page$1 [R=301,NC,L]
</IfModule>

Am I missing something, or Is this not possible?

Regards, Stash

This guide covers how to set up redirects on Nginx.

Placing this inside your server block in your Nginx configuration should do the trick:

rewrite ^/myold.zip$ http://www.newdomain.com/sample-page redirect;
