Redirect by Subdomain Add-On

Here's something I just knocked up.

I wanted to route requests for different *.wiki.companyname.com address to a specific webs without having to create lots of separate redirections in IIS.

In our company we have all wiki DNS names pointing at the same IP address. The attached script redirects the user.

The code

The redirectsHash is just a set of defaults. The TWiki.RedirectBySubdomain topic lists what needs to be mapped.

There is a very handy $debug = 1 setting you can make in the file :^)


I haven't tested the configuration in that file as I didn't want to mention all our internal sites to the world.
