i have an apache server and i'm an extreme newbie regarding server admin. I noticed that my server will not display .swf (flash) files on it. I drop the file into the directory and paste the url into the browser and the file will not load. However if i load the .swf file directly off of my desktop into a browser it works fine. This leads me to believe that something is wrong on the servers end. Any simple advice on which files to edit to make flash work on my linux apache server?

You probably need to add a MIME-type for these files.

See Apache mod_mime, and add an AddType directive specifying the correct MIME-type for your .swf files.
