Every time I try to install the Share This module I get a white screen of death with:
Sorry, there was a problem with handling your request.
Visit www.silverstripe.org to download the CMS
I don't even get to rebuild the database, all I do is upload the module folder and whamo. As soon as I delete the folder, the site is back up. I've installed plenty of other modules, no problem. I've tried with this one several times and always same result, does anyone have any ideas? I'm on SilverStripe v2.4.5.

Thanks for the reply. Right, when I try and run /dev/build/ all I am shown is the white screen. Same thing when I just go to the site or try and login to admin, just the white screen. Then I delete the "sharethis" folder and I am OK. I have not tried setting it to dev, good idea, I'll try that and see what more I can learn.

Sounds like the module isn't compatible with 2.4.5. Basically, one of the classes in the module is using an old (depreciated) method to extend something.
You could do one of two things:
1. Make changes to the module yourself, if you are doing that, a good place to start is http://doc.silverstripe.org . In relation to this error do a search for 'dataobjectdecorator'. Also have a look at the stuff on there about module development.
2. Get in touch with the module developer and submit a bug report to them. If they are still maintaining it, then they may help you out.
Haven't used the module myself, so can't offer much more than that I am afraid!
