Creating redirects in 6.0.8 from an old upgrade

I have upgraded my site now to v6.0.8 from cubecart 3.

I had a bought seo plugin on cubecart 3 which used i think ultimate urls for seo.

I now have lost these urls on the upgrade so my urls are different and I need to redirect my old pages indexed in google to my new ones but it is not working.

For example i have this page indexed on google:

Cheap Poster Frames | Black Snap Frames A0 A1 A2 A3 A4

www.cheapsnapframes.co.uk/cheap-poster-frames-black.html

... 25mm and 32mm widths, square corners, (RAL 9005) cheap prices UK Deli

In the .htaccess I have done this

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteBase /
 
 RewriteRule ^/cheap-poster-frames-black.html$ http://www.cheapsnapframes.co.uk/black-snap-frames.html[L,R=301]

Now when i click on this link in google I get a 404 error and it shows?

http://www.cheapsnapframes.co.uk/black-snap-frames.html?seo_path=cheap-poster-frames-black

Can anyone advise me what I need to do?

Many thanks

Tracy

Hi Tracy

This is more of a hosting question / issue than a CubeCart one, so have you tried contacting your hosting company and asking them or are they not being helpful ?

The ReWriteRule itself looks OK - did you add this manually or through your hosting control panel (cPanel etc). The positioning of the directive is very important plus also what other directives are also in the .htaccess file and cPanel generally adds new directives to the bottom of the file which rarely works
