That's odd. Perhaps you need to clear your cache or maybe your server takes a while to respond to a changed .htaccess file. (What web host are you using?)

Is there another .htaccess file in the WP folder which might have been modified? Or maybe you've made other changes???

By the way, why are you using a 303 redirect instead of a 301? And why not just redirect to http://mysite.com without the index.php and then set the DirectoryIndex directive?

yes, my blog folder(one with wordpress installation) has .htaccess file with following content, # BEGIN WordPress <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /blog/ RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L] </IfModule> # END WordPress – Manoj Nakum Jan 3 '12 at 3:44

Try removing every single .htaccess file resident on your Wordpress installation directory (renaming would do), hit Ctrl+F5 and wait for a few minutes and try again.
If the problem still persists try turning the debug mode on by changing WP_DEBUG constant to true in wp-config.php.
There ought to be some messages indicating the source of the problem.
