say hi to silverstripe the first time ;-)

my hoster provids a way to access the server without a hot dns-entry like:
http://99.99.99.99/~xyz

this is nice to show the page to the customer or let them fill in contents bevor you go live. but somehow %{REQUEST_URI} does not work with .htaccess and this form (http://99.99.99.99/~xyz) of url. the server tells me servererror 500 (apache).

I konw it's possible to access the server with a hostfile-entry but this seems for some people a too big challenge. can anybody point me in the right direction to make the url rewriting work with both or at last the "http://99.99.99.99/~xyz" kinda url?

this is how .htaccess looks like:

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

thx for any help in advance
