RewriteRules for files are not functioning

I am getting this in URL


and this on page:


You don't have permission to access /C:/wamp/www/ecommerce/shirts/ on this server.

Apache/2.4.9 (Win64) PHP/5.5.12 Server at localhost Port 80

My .htaccess file is this

RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^shirts/$ shirts/shirts.php RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ shirts/shirt.php?id=$1 RewriteRule ^receipt.php$ receipt/ [R=301] RewriteRule ^contact.php$ contact/ [R=301] RewriteRule ^shirts.php$ shirts/ [R=301]

first two rules for shirts folder are working fine. The last 3 are being ignored. I get the same behavior if i delete them entirely

Looks to me you are missing this line: RewriteRule ^(shirts/[0-9]+)$ /$1/ [R=301]

I think you need it for this, which you already have: RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ /shirts/shirt.php?id=$1
