    mod_rewrite gurus please help!

    I am moving my Xenforo installation from the document root to /community and I don't want to lose any links.

    I've tried many different ways to do this using .htaccess and mod_rewrite but it seems I can't figure it out.

    what I need is anything going directly to the document root (/) to be left alone. For example, http://www.xxx.com/index.php will not forward.

    Anything going to /forum to be forwarded to /community/forum
    Anything going to /threads will forward to /community/threads
    Anything going to /pages will forward to /community/pages
    Anything going to /events will go to /community/events
    Anything going to /media will go to /community/media
    Anything going to /members will go to /community/members

    So, for example, if the user has a saved link to:
    http://www.xxx.com/threads/how-long-...is-take.22373/
    It would redirect to:
    http://www.xxx.com/community/threads...is-take.22373/

    I've been pulling my hair out on this one and really appreciate any help.

    I believe I can figure the rest out if someone can help me with 1 redirect.

    I have a good start:


    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^(forum|threads|pages|events|media|members)/(.*)$ /community/$1/$2 [NC,L,R=301]
    Now I need to understand how to redirect anything to / that does not request a specific file.

    For example:
    http://www.xxx.com/index.php would not be redirected because it asks for index.php
    http://www.xxx.com would be redirected.
