Hi I'm really stuck with an .htaccess problem and wondered if anyone could help? I have a url on a server which needs to redirect to another url on a different server. Three directories from the original url need to be accessed so no divert.

What I have tried:

I have tried the following:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
Rewritecond %{http_host} ^originalurl\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}!^/(downloads|Footer|newsletters)/ [NC]
Rewriterule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

The divert does not occur and and access to the directories gives an error. The following version works ok but with only one directory access rather than three.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule !^downloads($|/) [L,R=301]

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Does clicking on "htaccess" tag (next to "See more:" just above this post) and viewing some of the relevant QA posts here in CP help any?

Thanks. I did try but nothing that really answered my problem.
