I have two problems. First, my webserver seems to store the htaccess-settings. If I make a change and upload the changes wont take place. Also, if I remove the file from the server, it still redirects! I have mailed the host but they just shrug. Is it possible that the settings are store in a cache? I'm completely dumbfund.

Secondly, it's the sessions.
If a user tries to access the site or it's subdirs for the first time they're redirected to the index page

They login, and - for instance - click on forum

So far so good. However, should the user (for som reason) type in the url without the www:
for example:
Then they are directed to the login page, again!
And this goes on and on.

I use this for the redirecting. Haven't written it myself but found it on the internet.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\..* [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301]

Any help is welcome.

No, the settings wouldn't be stored in a cache on the server side - as for your browser, or some kind of proxy inbetween, who knows?
Tried using a different browser? I bet your browser remembers the 'moved permanently' you're sending.

Sessions are stored in cookies, and those are should never be passed between domains. But then, you are redirecting...

Maybe you shouldn't be dropping the query string when redirecting... that would be worth a try, even if it's a wild guess. See the mod_rewrite documentation for details. Or try a different redirection code from 301

so long
