The installation ran through successfully, and the configuration also. Then I Clicked the "Delete Installation Files" Link and then when i go to the homepage I should be able to login, but apache tells me, that he misses the "check-php.php" file. How can I fix this Problem?

Did you try to reupload that file again and try if it works then?

It sounds to me like the installation procedure has in fact not completed successfully.

Could you look at the .htaccess file in your root directory and report back with the contents
( and it's existence for that matter )

The .htaccess exists.

It's contents:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

mod_rewrite support works for sure (I develop some stuff in CakePHP along the way)

with best regards

Hi all, I have the same problem like yuri41.

After research that seems to be only with FireFox 3.0 & Safari.

And only when you have wget package and tar -xvf it.

For my parts I have chown www-data all & chmod 755 all

I have try with 777 but nothing change

I have search what page contain check-php.php:

grep -r check-php.php *
sapphire/core/control/ContentController.php: 'check-php.php',
sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php: 'check-php.php',

That the only info I have, Waiting News and Thanks in advance Best Regards
