Friendly URL's Problem with $PATH_INFO

Hi,

I'm trying to setup friendly url's using this guide -> http://www.sitepoint.com/article/search-engine-friendly-urls/

The problem i'm having is that i'm using the code below where the explode $PATH_INFO code should create an array with the text to search with, but $PATH_INFO doesn't seem to display anything in the echo test and it doesn't send anything in the query, returning a blank set of results.

The link i'm using to access is http://cawsearch.com/svr2009/url_view_caw.php/1069 which should pass the 1069 as $var_array[1] which i was wanting to use as my search.

Can anyone see what i'm doing wrong that could have caused this?
$var_array = explode("/",$PATH_INFO);
 
$test=$var_array[1];
 
echo "$test<br>
$PATH_INFO<br>
$var_array[0]<br>
$var_array[1]<br>";
 
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM database WHERE id = '$test' ");

If you want to make friendly url's go definately for apache's mod_rewrite. It's designed for such things, there's no reason to use such "scripts".
