Whether to use 'pretty' URLs (or Short URL), e.g.
PATH_INFOmay be correct if cgi.fix_pathinfo is set, but then again it may not; lighttpd converts incoming path data to lowercase on systems with case-insensitive filesystems, and there have been reports of problems on Apache as well. To be safe we'll continue to keep it off by default in these instances.
Override this to false if
$_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] contains unexpectedly incorrect garbage, or to true if it is really correct. It's highly recommended to set its value in LocalSettings.php to prevent inconsistencies between web requests and scripts run from the command line, where the value may change between them.
$wgUsePathInfo = ( strpos( PHP_SAPI, 'cgi' ) === false ) && ( strpos( PHP_SAPI, 'apache2filter' ) === false ) && ( strpos( PHP_SAPI, 'isapi' ) === false );
