Why can I not use /FAQ as a URL? MediaWiki is stealing it!

It just displays:

The MediaWiki FAQ can be found at: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:FAQ 

Which isn't very helpful, as I cant change this. I dont want to have to use Faq as my URL.

That's what happens when you configure Short URLs starting at the MediaWiki installation path, setup that's not recommended! (and you now know why)

FAQ is a file in the filesystem, same as index.php, load.php etc.
