... meaning you did not read documentation carefully enough...

RealURL does not change URL at all while in backend. Are you sure your .htaccess for Apache was not modified without understanding what was there? The one _.htaccess shipped with TYPO3 is normally 
just fine for most common use cases and don't need to be touched except by renaming it to make it visible to Apache.

I would suggest to solve the backend problem as you certainly made something wrong. And then to go through the documentation (more) carefully again. There's nearly nothing to do to make RealURL work, 
you certainly overread a part of the documentation with your enthusiasm having pretty real URL for your website ;-)
