problem with the htaccess file and the access of the function in the main controller

i am new code igniter and i am having some problem. i tried to place the htaccess file in the project file. and since i have done that i cant call any other function in the browser,every time i do so it directs me to the wampserver page. can somebody please help me.

Following is the default layout of .htaccess file in codeigniter:
RewriteEngine on

RewriteBase /yoursitename/
# if you installed facebook in a subdir use something like below and remove the line above
# RewriteBase /subdirectory/

RewriteRule ^admin/$ index.php/admin/login/
RewriteRule ^admin$ index.php/admin/login/

RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images/|js/|css/)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1

Options -Indexes

Replace "yoursitename" with your project folder.

no i have not installed facebook in any of the subdirectory. i did replace the sitename with the project folder name but the problem is still there.Even after following the instruction above i didnt get any change. Is there any other way out?

Can you list down here the path to your wamp web root/htaccess?
and can you list down the full contents of you .htaccess file?


the path to the wamp web root/htaccess is:

below is the content of my .htaccess file
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /try/

#Removes access to the system folder by users.
#Additionally this will allow you to create a System.php controller,
#previously this would not have been possible.
#'system' can be replaced if you have renamed your system folder.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^system.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

#When your application folder isn't in the system folder
#This snippet prevents user access to the application folder
#Submitted by: Fabdrol
#Rename 'application' to your applications folder name.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^application.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

#Checks to see if the user is attempting to access a valid file,
#such as an image or css document, if this isn't true it sends the
#request to index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
# If we don't have mod_rewrite installed, all 404's
# can be sent to index.php, and everything works as normal.
# Submitted by: ElliotHaughin

ErrorDocument 404 /index.php


Basically, why do you need .htaccess anyway? Do you want your index.php unseen from the client's side? you can try the simple .htaccess directive
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
# The ones in the list are ignored if encountered in the URI
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|robots\.txt)
# rewrite anything else to the "index.php" page under the "try" subdirectory
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /try/index.php/$1 [L]

yeah basically that is what i want to do. i replace the code above with what is in the .htaccess file but it is not working. please how should i use the code above with the .htaccess file.
