Using default RedHat 8 install.

Not sure what I'm not doing correctly but I can't get even the simplest rewrite rule to work. I'm placing a .htaccess file one level deeper than my home directory.

I'm putting the file here:

(same as www.domain.com/~cparker/oop/)

Here are the contents of this file so far.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /~cparker/oop/
RewriteRule ^x$ detail.php?id=atitcb

I'm expecting this rule to match:


and turn it into:


But it doesn't work. :(

Anyone see what's going wrong?
