Basic API to handle HTTP redirects with the Flow Framework
The Neos.RedirectHandler package for Flow allows to create redirects that will be returned to the client.
It can be used to divert changed URLs to new targets without having to adjust the webserver configuration for each redirect.
To use the redirect package, you have to install this package
composer require "neos/redirecthandler"
and additionally a storage package. A default one for storing redirects in the database can be installed using composer with
composer require "neos/redirecthandler-databasestorage"
Note: When using this to handle redirects for persistent resources, you must adjust the default
rewrite rules! By default, any miss for
_Resources/… stops the request and returns a 404 from the
# Make sure that not existing resources don't execute Flow RewriteRule ^_Resources/.* - [L]
For the redirect handler to even see the request, this has to be removed. Usually the performance impact can be neglected, since Flow is only hit for resources that once existed and to which someone still holds a link.
