This was not the original question of the OP, I did point out the difference in my last post but he did change it in a later post.
"http://localhost/slush/sub2/test.html" <this is not a rewritable URI as it is the correct URI to go to the test.html with or without a .htaccess rewrite rule.
This would be a true test of the .htaccess rewrite rule which is as the OP wanted in the first place:http://localhost/sub/test.html
That URI with the .htaccess rewrite rule loads the test.html in the sub2 folder as expected.
The fault has been in the Alias, which I removed for this test and no problems.
is in the URI then the Alias redirects the request to the doc root and there is no sub2
folder in the doc root, it is in the slush
folder - the conflict starts here.
The Alias is parsed first followed by the .htaccess file so the Alias has passed the URI with a slush in it to doc root then the .htaccess takes the URI and tries to rewrite the URI to the sub2 folder which is not in the doc root, consequence is a file not found.
So now we have:.htaccess in C:\xampp1\htdocs
RewriteRule ^sub/(.*)$ sub2/$1Tree

No need for apologies as we can all err when it is way past our bed time.

Gives a 404 error.http://localhost/sub/test.html
Does not give a 404 error.

Not a true test because as far as I can tell you did not include the Alias in the httpd.conf file into the equation, which would have produced the 404 errors.
This is the erroneous Alias and when removed the rule works, when it is inserted the URIs return error 404:
- Code: Select all
Alias /slush "C:/xampp1/htdocs"
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
Allow from all
At least for now, please use either an Alias or a rewrite rule but not both especially the above Alias directive and try and confirm exactly what you want to do and how you want to access your files.
