I have troubles with installing SS.
First of all i have tryed to install SS on a Denwer WAMP. And Apache just crush after i navigate to main page.
Then i tryed to install it on a XAMPP. And it just throw me an error even on the install script. I guess becouse of php 5.1.6
Now i'm tring to install it on Winginx. Wich is sort of WAMP but based on NGINX. And i having troubles with fancy url becose NGINX dont have mod_rewrite. It has own module for url rewrite...

So my question is: please explain in a simple language what request shuld be rewrited to make SS work.
And please kindly explain why installer requires fancy urls???? Is this something that shuld be search engine optimized :LOL:

Or may be you know how to turn this FURL off???

PHP 5.1.6 isn't supported. Check for an example of an nginx configuration.

This is what i get after installation of SS on Winginx using that configuration.
Install script say OK then redirect to the flush page wich was NGINX default 404.

I got SS working on my LAMP and on my Windows machine with Apache + PHP + MySQL manualy installed to latest versions.
Still issue remains... no WAMP culd handle SS... And i culd not get SS working on Nginx with configuration posted on the official tutorial page. I guess it's outdated!
