Hi I am very new to cms. I have down loaded silverstripe and am trying to install it on xampp running on osx.
i dropped the folder into the htdocs folder and experienced a number of error messages re permissions. i have changed all the folders and they are now ok but i am unable to alter the .htaccess file. i can not find it in the folder at all. i tried creating a new file using a text editor but the error message still comes up. I also have an error message telling me that i need to alter the config memory to 32M, at present it is 8M. i have no idea how to do this.
