I need redirect old html page to the new ones.

I have decided to use htaccess however I cannot get this to work.

The attached code is the complete code I am using.

When this code is uploaded to the root it just displays the error shown on the attached screenshot   Image1 Image2
Redirect 301 /approved_dealers/dealers.htm /index.html
Redirect 301  /faq/faq.htm /faq.html
Redirect 301  /products/products.htm /benefits.html
Redirect 301  /employment/employment.htm /index.html
Redirect 301  /news/news.htm /index.html
Redirect 301  /price_information/price_list.htm /buy.html
Redirect 301  /swift_owners/swift_owners.htm /index.html

The third parameter of your redirect must be a URL, I believe, for example:  

Redirect 301  /news/news.htm http://www.example.com/index.html

Also, the Internal Server Error means Apache had a problem parsing the configuration file.  It found an invalid command which would be your redirect statements.

Sussed it.

The file was being uploaded as binary rather than ASCII
