I'm getting some difficulties with mod_rewrite on the new Apache dev PC I've setup.

I've enabled mod_rewrite being an apache module and editted the conf file to permit spinning, however, if I attempt creating rewrites nothing happens. The htaccess file has been invoked to some degree as I can result in a 500 error by putting invalid syntax within the file.

Can someone place the stupd mistake I'm making or suggest another thing that i'm missing that requires enabling?

httpd.conf:

<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
</Directory>

htaccess code:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase / 

RewriteRule ^content/css/([a-z0-9])/$  /min/?g=$1 [L]

RewriteRule ^1.php$ 2.php

You may not have

<Directory />
     ...
     Deny from all
</Directory>

in httpd.conf? You need to see 403 error is situation.
