i have my client website whihc is a static website having appx 5000 static folders and each folder has index.html inside. he has both the version indexed in the engines like
/folder/ & /folder/index.html which are serving the same content, i want to remove the canonical issue and want to redirect all the

/folder/index.html to /folder/ in htaccess.

Please suggest, so i dont need to edit the all 5000 folder for the correct linking and then redirecting and all.

That redirect is two lines of code, and the RewriteCond should test THE_REQUEST.

A quick check shows the code has been posted nearly 2000 times before in this very forum.

[google.com...]

Use code that has been posted in the last few months, not some version from years ago. You need a directive that preserves the requested path in the redirect.

You DO also need to fix the links on the site to point to
www.example.com/
and
www.example.com/folder/
but you can work on that over time.
