I still don't fully understand routes, so I apologize in advance. I have a single rails app, but multiple domains pointing to different directories for marketing reasons. I am looking for a way to have the secondary domain point to the primarydomain.com/directory. It'd want any links to primarydomain.com/directory to 301 redirect to the secondary domain. Essentially, to the user everything should look like secondarydomain.com/whatever but be primarydomain.com/directory/ whatever on the server. How can I handle this without affecting routes? Thanks, Jason

Thanks, I figured this should be a Rewrite rule but was not familiar enough with rails/routes to determine if I was making it more complicated. I feel pretty confident in working with Apache. Thanks much!
