Are you really running an HTTP server and service such a strange directory?

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind.
Perhaps, if you take the comments out and tell us what problem you are getting it would help? At the moment all we have is a small chunk of simple code, and "It don't work" which is not helpful as errors messages go...

I cannot believe that not only you are running HTTP server on "http://localhost", on default port; and that your have a sub-directory named "/". It's more likely that you do not quite understand the URI scheme; and you actual URL is "http://localhost/New".

Please see for more information:[^].

I also not quite sure that you are running any HTTP server at all. Did you install one? You never mentioned it, and I suspect you don't quite understand how it works. Sorry if I'm wrong about it.

Also, I want to note that there are no situations where using a hard-coded URL is useful. However, if this is just a preliminary test, it's probably OK.
