    Re: Moving from dev environment to live site Link to this post

    Okay. So, I just continued installation disregarding the mod_rewrite and Server Software warnings; however, upon install completion, I get nothing—a blank white page of nothingness.

    Man, this is really frustrating. I have been using SilverStipe for weeks with ease on my local dev environment, but the minute I try to go live with it, I have nothing but issues.

    In summary the issues I'm experiencing:

    1. Copying my existing files from the dev environment to the live site yields nothing but a page that displays an index of files in that directory

    2. Doing a fresh install of v2.1.1 instead did not create the necessary .htaccess in the silverstripe root directory, so I uploaded a blank .htaccess file which removed the warning

    3. I then got a Server Software warning saying: I can't tell what webserver you are running. Without Apache I can't tell if mod_rewrite is enabled.

    4. I also got a mod_rewrite warning saying: I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself.

    Again, I've checked my database configuration multiple times for accuracy, and confirmed my webserver is running Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix).

    Wherein lies the problem here?

    Thanks so much for your suggestions thus far. Please let me know if you know of any other possible to solutions.

    Thx!

    I recently switched hosting providers, and just realized the webserver I'm on is using Litespeed instead of Apache. Could this be causing my install problems? Does SilverStripe run on Litespeed?

    I don't believe we've tried SilverStripe on that server. We only support Apache and lighthttpd at the moment...

    You'd need to see how to set up the equivalent of Apache's .htacess configuration in Lightspeed.

    Re: Moving from dev environment to live site Link to this post

    So, I've yet to get SilverStripe installed with my current web host that is using LiteSpeed. As well as posting here, I've been discussing this with the peeps on the LiteSpeed forums. The general consensus is that it should work fine since LiteSpeed is meant to work with Apache-based applications; however it's not and I'm at a complete loss. Support at my current host says their logs state it's successfully been installed, yet I get nothing but a blank white page after trying to install

    That being said, I decided to try installing on another site hosted with 1and1 that IS using Apache. Oddly enough, I get the same server software warnings:

    "I can't tell what webserver you are running. Without Apache I can't tell if mod_rewrite is enabled."

    "I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself."

    I've tried using the most recent stable version (2.1.1) as well daily builds thinking that might solve the install issue—No luck.
    What is causing this? Why can't I get this to install?

    Please help!

    Thanks you.

    OMG! I got it to work! YESSSSSSSSSSS!

    All it took was deleting and recreating a new database, which I had tried before...weird that it worked this time around.

    Anyhow, the pages with content I had created while in the testing environment did not get transfered over in the process. Is there a way I can transfer those to the live site without having to recreate all of it?

    Thx!

    I get the following error in phpMyAdmin when I try import the database:

    #1044 - Access denied for user 'xxxx'@'localhost' to database 'xxxx'

    How do I gain access?
