Hi guys.

I was wondering if it’s possible to use .htaccess to make a folder appear to be in the root of the document?

Example:

Accessing http://example.com/somefolder

looks like this in the browser:

http://example.com/

Try this

Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule ^somefolder$ http://www.example.com [NC]
