I may be wrong, but isn't the pretty URLs thing down to mod_rewrite,
and independent of PHP? I understood it to just be interpretting the
short URLs as though they were the long ones. In which case, all you
have to do is play around with .htaccess until the rewrite rule works
When PHP is run with the normal apachehandler or apache2handler server
APIs, you can place a slash and additional data after the script
filename, and it's passed on to the script (index.php/Main_Page).
MediaWiki uses this preferentially to index.php?title=Main_Page when
In CGI mode this doesn't work, so setting up rewrite rules is necessary.
