.htaccess rewrite for friendly urls (update to documentation needed?)

edited May 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
On the page below of the docs it gives you some code for your .htaccess file that should get the friendly URLs working (URLs without index.php?p=/etc).

This seems to be a little out of date, so I offer up the code that worked for us:

# Make fancy URLS work RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?p=/$1 [QSA,L]

In addition to this the controllers document could do with a reminder to edit the conf/config.php file and set the following global to "TRUE":

$Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] = TRUE;

Or a link to this document:

I recall from first trying to get this to work I managed to get the .htaccess side of things done but couldn't work out how to make the garden recognised the fact that it didn't need the index.php.
