I am trying to configure how to redirect my Magento website from "www.mywebsite.com/home" to base url "www.mywebsite.com", it always redirecting to www.mywebsite.com/home

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/home
RewriteRule ^(.*)home$ http://www.mywebsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

but I got error at the browser says "The page isn't redirecting properly"

I don't know where to change it to only "http://www.mywebsite.com/"

Khali. please try this

find RewriteEngine on at .htaccess then file added below code

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/home
RewriteRule ^(.*)home$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=301,L] 

Try this in your .htaccess file:

RewriteCond     %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yourwebsite\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourwebsite.com/$1 [L,R=301]

You may need to make alternations based on whether or not you require support for https.
