Use this directive in the config file.

FileRules filename contains index.html

Subject: [SWISH-E:445] Only indexing certain filenames


We are trying to use Swish-E to index our local services directory.

There are a variety of files in the directory, but the only ones
we want to index are the ones named 'index.html'.  I can't find
a way to do this with Swish-E.

I tried using 'IndexOnly index.html' but that didn't work, because
IndexOnly only works with file suffixes (the stuff after the last dot
in the filename).

Is there a way to do this, apart from using FileRules to exhaustively
list every filename we might use other than index.html?
