Friendly URLs

Well, I enabled friendly urls for my forum and restarted my computer not thinking it would lock the website up lol. Is the only way to fix this to install mod_rewrite? I don't know why it would do this.

Friendly URLs require mod_rewrite on the server. You must also upload the .htaccess file in your forum root.

The Admin CP is always accessible by visiting /admin.php. This will work even with broken friendly URLs in play.
