Order Redirects and write to Htaccess file

A short note on this step, the URL-Changer currently writes only available ".htaccess" files.
The functionality is only given with an Apache webserver and active Rewrite.

NGINX users can write to the Support to get a nice offer for the development.


In the next step you can set the ordering of the Redirects. Note that first one wins!

After this you can write all active Redirects into the Htaccess file.
