    Help with 301 redirects - please!

    I'm a rather new website builder/administrator, and have a slightly tricky (for me) problem that I'd like a little help with.

    One page of my website is:


    I've created a 301 redirect to send people from ../blog.html to ../blog.php in case they type that instead (and because the page used to be a html page). This is working fine.

    <FilesMatch .*>
       Options +MultiViews

    It can give problems if there are files and directories with the same name.
