Note: All the instructions bellow are for do in the htaccess file.
- Uncomment the command RewriteBase if the site is running in a VirtualDocumentRoot at http://example.com/ or uncomment the command RewriteBase /drupal if you are using Drupal in a subdirectory or in a VirtualDocumentRoot at http://example.com/drupal
- Add the following code below the RewriteEngine command in your .htaccess file RewriteRule ^old_file_name http://www.example.com/new-file-name [R=301,L]
- Replace old_file_name with the path to the old file which you wish to have redirected and then replace http://www.example.com/new-file-name with the complete path to the new page.
One additional note, if you put these changes bellow the rewrite statement and before any other redirects, it works better
