URL Redirection

Hi,

We have 2 confluence systems (one old version and one newer release) that I want to merge together. What I want to do is merge them in such a way that the old site becomes a space of the new site. The old site has a unique url (e.g. oldsite.confluence.co.uk) that is quite well used by our users, so when this site is merged into the new site with new url (e.g. intranet.confluence.co.uk) I want the old url to go to the new space on the new site (e.g. old.confluence.co.uk redirects automatically to intranet.confluence.co.uk/oldsiteasspace).

Now do I do this inside Confluence, or should I just use an IIS redirect from oldsite to newsite/oldsiteasspace?

Any advice?

Many thanks.

You could use a simple "redirection" macro in the old Confluence, so that when someone lands on it, it punts them over to the new page.  Problem with doing that is that you'll need to think about how you do it on every page, and it requires you to leave your old Confluence running to land on so they get redirected.

As you've already suggested, an IIS redirect is going to be a lot nicer - you can do it in one place, and turn off the old Confluence.
