URL Rewriting not working, .htaccess file in a subdirectory.


Hello Experts,

Trying to learn url rewriting,

I have created simple rewrite rules in a subdirectory .. but i guess they are not working (i tried saving.htaccess in root directory still no change)

Kindly access the following http://www.jipindia.org/urlrewrites/samplefile.html

Here i have given 2 dummy file links, when somebody clicks on 'Old File' .. i want url redirection to happen and
instead of http://www.jipindia.org/urlrewrites/old.html shown in the address bar i want

http://www.jipindia.org/urlrewrites/new.html to be shown in address bar.

Similarly when somebody clicks on 'Category File' .. i want url redirection to happen and
instead of http://www.jipindia.org/urlrewrites/details-priority-33-cat_id-44-type-22.html shown in the address bar

I want http://www.jipindia.org/urlrewrites/priority33/hometheater44/widescreen22 to be displayed

To achieve the above i have created following .htaccess file in 'urlrewrites' subdirectory




Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^urlrewrites/old\.html$ urlrewrites/new.html
RewriteRule details-priority-(.*)-cat_id-(.*)-type-(.*)\.html$ priority$1/hometheater$2/widescreen$3





Please help me, thanks in advance.

Since you're anchoring the first regex (with ^), I believe you need to include the slashes, like this:
Code:
RewriteRule ^/urlrewrites/old\.html$ /urlrewrites/new.html

The second example seems to be working correctly, because I receive the following 404 message. That is, the error wasn't that it didn't translate it, but that it couldn't find the file to serve. Maybe you need a trailing slash after widescreen$3.
Code:
The requested URL /urlrewrites/priority33/hometheater44/widescreen22 was not found on this server.
