htaccess file not allowed

If I'm unable to use a htaccess file on a certain host, is there another way to get index.php out of the URI?

No... And I think you'll want to get a better host, there are tons of cheap ones out there that support this!

This is not my host. Our company use a reseller package. One of our clients is on IIS. They're just going to have to put up with the inde.php/ in the URI.

Thanks for the reply.

You can do rewrite rules in IIS. We use Helicon's Isapi Rewrite (version 2). Commercial licence is not that expensive. It's not quite as powerful as mod_rewrite but still removing the index.php from the url is trivial plus you get access to HTTP_X_REWRITE_URL (which is equal to PATH_INFO under Apache) which takes a lot of headaches away since you can just do:

$config['uri_protocol']    = "HTTP_X_REWRITE_URL";

and it works just as it would in an Apache environment:
RewriteRule /(.*) /index.php/$1 [I,L]
