    Assigning new templates and config.php file Link to this post

    I've just installed SilverStripe. I love the way the page adding/editing works. What I'm trying to get a handle on now is how to assign new themes. I downloaded one from silverstripe.com and uploaded it to the themes folder, but for the life of my I cannot fine the mysite/_config.php file. When I open the mysite/ folder, I don't see any files at all - just four folders: code, css, images, and javascript. This seems so elementary. What am I missing?

    sjbmaine,

    If during installation you selected the "tutorial" option, then mysite/_config.php will actually be in tutorial/_config.php

    This was an automatic install through GoDaddy. Is it okay to leave the file config.php file there or do I need to move it?

    Thanks!

    In the config file will be a variable $project. You can rename the folder to whatever you want and update the variable.
