improve fancy url radio button help text
OpenPublic

Description

The install.php states:

Fancy URL support detection failed, disabling this option. Make sure you renamed htaccess.sample to .htaccess.

This is misleading. I had a look in js/install.js and it actually checks if the correct rewrite rules are already working by fetching a URL with AJAX which can only work if you already configured your webserver correctly. Just copying htaccess does not solve the problem for other webservers than apache, so the help text is not helpful!
