    Setting up the tutorial after installing a theme Link to this post

    I jumped in and used a theme instead of the tutorial. What do I change to be able to use the tutorial files instead?

    I have just installed SS on Leopard on a Mac, using the standard installation rather than MAMP. Its doable, even for a terminal-phobe like me. I've made some notes and I'm happy to pass them on, if people are interested.

    cheers

    I think you can move the "mysite" directory somewhere else (keep it for later). Then, copy in the "tutorial" directory to the installation (this should be in the SS tarball).

    Run db/build?flush=1 at the end of the URL. e.g. http://localhost:8888/myss/db/build?flush=1

    Hopefully that should get it started again.

    Not so good. My URL is:
    http://silverstripe/
    running
    http://silverstripe/db/build?flush=1
    after removing the mysite folder (the tutorial folder was already there.), I just get a blank screen.

    Put the mysite folder back and all is OK again.

    Hmm... In that case, remove the installation and re-install?

    I have found the solution. I moved the mysite folder out, then copied the config.php from that folder back to the tutorial folder and commented out the theme line. I am now in tutorial mode.
