I'm using WAMP to serve a pet project on my localhost called "mvc." I'm trying to redirect requests made to mvc's root to a sub folder called /public. I have a .htaccess file in my root with the below code. It's not getting the job done.

Code:
RewriteEngine on
#!-d .htaccess ignores all requests made directly to directories sub folders
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
#!-f .htaccess ignores all requests made to specific files within directory
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
#favicon.ico is a default file some browsers request. don't let browser trigger 404 if we don't have this file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico

RewriteBase /mvc/public

#send all alphanumeric requests to index.php as QSA, second match catches file extension
RewriteRule ^([-_A-z0-9\/]+)\.?([A-z]+)?$ /mvc/public/index.php?url=$1&extension=$2 [QSA,L]
I have mod_rewrite enabled and I'm not getting any errors.
