I've made an .htaccess file and put it in with the main html

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule /evid/(.*) /Results.php?evid=$1

When I try to request http://localhost/evid/23234

It returns a not found error. Permissions are set to apache read, root read/write. I've spent an hour trying to figure out whats wrong. I have restarted the server each time I'd modify the htaccess file to be safe. Whats wrong?
