things i have to date is:


     Options +FollowSymLinks
     RewriteEngine on
     RewriteRule ^/(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

things i require is if (.*) is empty, it rewrites to and when it's something, it redirects to$1 -- I'm not sure how you can perform the if empty rule. at this time. At this time it redirects to whether there's something taken or otherwise.

Interesting help

 RewriteRule ^/$ [R=301,L]
 RewriteRule ^/(.+)$$1 [R=301,L]
