301 Redirect .zip files

Ubuntu LEMP 16.04

I can’t for the life of me figure this out. I’m trying to redirect a .zip file to a page on a new domain. I tried using the htaccess file but It doesn’t seem to be working.

The Idea Is to get

To redirect to a page on my actual site

My latest attempt

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
//301 Redirect Old File
Redirect 301 /
RewriteRule /$$1 [R=301,NC,L]

Am I missing something, or Is this not possible?

Regards, Stash

Placing this inside your server block in your Nginx configuration should do the trick:

rewrite ^/$ redirect;
