I've searched but havn't really found a cleancut answer so sorry if it seems obvious but my question is simple.
Is it possible to use SilverStripe without url rewriting?

(for those who wonder why, it is because I would like to be able to setup a website on a free hosting server, which unfortunately does not allow url rewriting)

Hi gum,

you can run silverstripe without mod_rewrite - it doesn't look as clean though. What happens is that you use the index.php all the time. So...


where the index.php "fake" mod_rewirte for you.
