    Help with .htaccess redirect

    So I use DotEasy for my hosting. I am trying to have an image redirect to a URL using .htaccess. This is the code.
    Redirect /lulz.jpg http://www.google.com
    I did it at my school using there server and it worked fine. It just wont work with DotEasy for some reason. I have both the image and the .htaccess in the root folder. Thanks!

    Try 'Redirect 301', eg:

    Redirect 301 /lulz.jpg http://www.google.com

    Then doteasy probably disallow usage of .htaccess via the 'AllowOverride' option set in the apache config.

    EDIT:
    An alternative is to create a directory called 'lulz.jpg', and in the directory create index.php and put:
    <?php header('Location: http://google.com'); ?>

    The way you tell is if you get a 404 error when you access that image url instead of a 500 or other error. If it always throws back 404 Not Found then no .htaccess support

    Usually your host can tell you if they support .htaccess or not.
