[Mediawiki-l] Way to redirect all pages to new server?

I've setup the .htaccess file in the servers directory, and I've made
sure to set the AllowOverrides in Apache to "All"....but it doesn't seem
to make any difference. Nothing bothers to redirect...

Here is an example of what I have in the .htaccess file:
Redirect /oldwikidirectory http://newserver/newwikidirectory

Am I missing something? Something else I need to set in Apache?

Thanks,
Dave

.htaccess should work. Or, you can probably do something with the DNS
records, which would improve performance.
