I have created a new Drupal 8 site in a subdomain of an existing Drupal 6 site.
The new site sits in public_html/dev - so the url for it is dev.mydomain.com. What is the best way to redirect mydomain.com to dev.mydomain.com? The old files can stay where they are.
One idea is to create a new .htaccess in root containing not much more than a few rewrite rules for the subdomain. This file would replace the existing .htaccess which of course will have some settings for Drupal 6 (e.g. PHP version). Now, does this mean that the .htaccess file in the subdomain with all appropriate settings for Drupal 8 will be active? Or should I copy the subdomain .htaccess file to root and make the rewrite changes in it? I don't have access to apache files.
