Redirect .swf

How to redirect .swf with Flash - duplicate content

New to the forum and would really appreciate some help.

I believe I've received duplicate content penalties due to a lack of htaccess, and so trying to tighten it up.

Just as index.html redirects back to /, I want to make the .swf file that is used on any page redirect back to the containing folder.

ie - www.domain.com/photos/gallery.swf > www.domain.com/photos/

You will need to setup two rules for this to work.
You will need a Redirect rule or RedirectPermanent
and you will need a DirectoryIndex rule to set the gallery.swf file as an index. Consult the apache docs for the syntax on these

Search for tutorials on url canonization for more details.
