The two regular expressions you have are conflicting with each other. There's no way they'll both match at the same time.The RewrtieCond wants "^/testing/(.*).html" which would match "/testing/something.html", but not "something.html". The second one wants "^(.*).html" which would match "something.html" (relative to the .htaccess folder I think), but not "/testing/something.html". And in order for the rewrite to be executed, it must match both the RewriteCond and RewriteRule regular expressions.Also, when you have "http://" in your rewriting action (the second argument in RewriteRule), mod_rewrite performs a redirect instead of a rewrite. That reminds me - your title says "redirect", but you're talking about "rewrite". The difference between the two is that with rewrite, the user sees the original URL, and with a redirect, the user sees another URL. Well, that's the "user friendly" explanation anyway.Try to remove the RewriteCond, and make the RewriteRule something like:

RewriteRule ^/testing/(.*).html /testing/test.php?name=$1 [L]
