I have a client that has an htaccess file that rewrites his url from mydomain/somepage.php to mydomain/somepage. It's working fine in his root folder. I need to re-design his site so I'm trying to build it in a new folder. I copied the htaccess file into the new folder, but it doesn't seem to recognize the re-written URLs. Here is the content of the htaccess file:
RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^equipment/(.*)$ equipment_category.php?id=$1
RewriteRule ^browse/(.*)$ equipment_category.php?keyword=$1
RewriteRule ^product/(.*)$ equipment_product.php?code=$1
RewriteRule ^product/s/(.*)$ equipment_product.php?op=s&code=$1

Since this file is in the new folder, I would imagine that I shouldn't have to enter the new folder name since this should see the new folder as a root, correct? Any suggestions? (This content is the same content as the htaccess file in the root folder.)
