I already finished my Magento website, now I need to redirect all old website urls to Magento url pages.

I already did "Auto-redirect to Base URL" to "Yes (301 Moved permanently)".

By the way the old website and Magento "new website" are in the same root directory, I just renamed the old index.html to indexold.html for the old website.

Thank you in advance

You should be able to either add redirects in your admin system (Catalog | URL Rewrite Management) or do it in a .htacess. It probably depends how many pages you need to redirect and also if your old URLs had any pattern against them - that might make RegEx an easier way to go.

There seem to be a number of plugins that might let you monitor 404s so that you can implement redirects - http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/catalogsearch/result/?q=404+manager&pl=0

  • Thanks Douglas, does it matter if the old site is not Magento site

  • No, not at all, you'll be redirecting URLs. As long as you know the URLs, you're golden! Commented Mar 28, 2014 at 14:32
  • I tried with (Catalog | URL Rewrite Management) I wrote the old and new url but it doesn't redirect the old one

  • Could you post an example? Have you looked over magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/creating-url-rewrites and magentocommerce.com/wiki/modules_reference/english/… ? Commented Mar 28, 2014 at 15:22
  • this is old url:www.cabas-durables.fr/contents/fr/d85_sac_kraft_fenetre.html, and this is new url: www.cabas-durables.fr/sacs-bouteilles/sacs-papier-a-fenetre-transparente
