Hi there,

In the event module I have my events set-up, but most will not happen until next year now.

I was wondering if there was a way of defaulting the 'calendar' page to show all available events? or if I caould default the search dates to the end of 2010??

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Ok - so I did that - I put it in the mysite/_config.php and my whole site has just crashed.

Firefox is now taking me to http://dev.senseoflife.co.uk//install.php

I've tried both ?flush=1 and dev/build?flush=1 and nothing.

Please help what can I do.

If you comment it out, does the site work again?

Usually you get redirected to install.php when SS cannot obtain your database credentials. Is all that info still in your _config.php?

Ok - I've balls up big style here.

I updated the _config.php file, but didn't use the newest verison.

This is what is in it now...

<?php

global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $database;
$database = "";

require_once("conf/ConfigureFromEnv.php");

// This line set's the current theme. More themes can be
// downloaded from http://www.silverstripe.com/themes/
SSViewer::set_theme('blackcandy');

?>

My site has since been set-up on a sub domain until it was ready to go live dev.myaddress.com

Do you know how I would alter the _config file to point to the sub domain? Do I need to enter the name of the database in the _config also?

If I then upload the config file again do I do dev/build?flush=1??

Please tell me I've not lost everything - what a nightmare.

No, you certainly haven't lost everything. Your config.php file looks weird. I'm not sure what you mean by updating to the newest version.

It should look something like this:

global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $databaseConfig;
$databaseConfig = array(
   "type" => "MySQLDatabase",
   "server" => "localhost",
   "username" => "user",
   "password" => "pass",
   "database" => "my_database"
);

and you don't need that require_once() in there.
