    Event Calendar Module Download Broken Link to this post

    New to SilverStripe and quite impressed. Going bongo downloading all the extensions to test everything for a community site. But the download for the Calendar module seems to be broken...

    This URL:
    http://silverstripe.org/event-calendar/TrunkDownload/generate

    Throws this error:
    Website Error
    There has been an error
    The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

    I just downloaded the Event Calendar Module, unpacked it. changed the directory name to event_calendar. It unpacks as "modules-event_calendar-r88" and the config file is looking for "event_calendar." I upload to the root of my SS install and append "db/build?flush=1" to my base URL. All I get is:

    Website Error
    There has been an error
    The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

    I remove the directory and everything's working again. If I got an error message that wasn't quite so abstract, I'd have a fighting chance at fixing the problem. But, the above text doesn't help.

    Make sure your site is in dev mode so you can get an error.

    Director::set_environment_type('dev');

    Perfect. Just what I needed.

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    Problem: Not entirely sure. I added the line to my _config.php, pushed it up to the web server, and expected to see some additional output. Instead, the module installed properly. Now I'll never know what was really wrong. One thing I did different was type add a / after build, as in db/build/?flush=1. I see it entered both ways all over. Does that slash need to be there? The documentation here shows it without.

    /db/build?flush=1 is deprecated. Use /dev/build

    So I install event_calendar. Discover that the instructions don't tell you to rename the directory to event_calendar ((might save a few posts here eh?) rename the directory and then discover from the fine print that dataobject manager is required. (not exactly in caps or anything)

    So I install dataobjectmanager
    and run
    http://www.mysite.co.nz/SilverStripe-v2.4.6/dev/build a couple of times
    http://www.mysite.co.nz/SilverStripe-v2.4.6/?flush=1
    and I get
    Fatal error: Event Calendar requires the DataObjectManager module. in /home/mysite/public_html/SilverStripe-v2.4.6/event_calendar/_config.php on line 8

    so why doesn't the module get recognised?
    am I holding my mouth wrong?
