Rewrite rules not working on localhost

Hello Friends

I am badly stuck with following Problem

I have a Project set up on my localhost in following hierarchy


Now the Problem is I want to rewrite following url :




For this I have written a .htaccess file with following code

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/category/([^/]+).html /index.php?file=$1&sub1=category [NC]
But it is not working, what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance

    The order of the URLs on the RewriteRule line is backwards. It should be old then new.

    Also, the abl directory is missing from both.

    There was no need to define directory , if you are working on same directory in which files resides
