How to redirect links from YaBB to PHPBB

Post by ferryboat » Mon Oct 15, 2018 12:24 pm

I've some old referrals to be recovered, but can't get any result till now.

This is the most frequent pattern:

/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=3 --> /forum/viewforum.php?f=3

Unfortunately 'Redirect permanent' doesn't work, neither work other pattern available in many website.
So the last opportunity to get a solution is to ask a question here.

don't know for sure but I don't think your url for the yabb board would include the cgi-bin directory.

besides, any redirect would have to include the complete url.

Yes it did. I don't know if something has changed in the last 4 years.

Usually I don't need that, applying Redirect permanent. In the case above I couldn't use Redirect permanent.

In any case the question is the same and would be how to redirect?

www.mywebsite.xxx/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=3 --> www.mywebsite.xxx/forum/viewforum.php?f=3
