I would like to rewrite a URL with a subdomain to a Magento category. For example, I would like to write the URL:




or even better


More than willing to play with both Magento and webserver configuration.

My thanks in advance.


Depending on Apache versus Nginx you will end up with different rewrites. But I would make a vhost for subdomain, first. Then put the rewrite or redirect under that vhost to go to the proper sub-page/category.

The docs on Nginx rewrites are here http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_rewrite_module.html

Apache is here http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html though you'll have just as much luck with the 2 trillion links about Apache rewrites through Google :)
