First off, Silverstripe is a awesome CMS, the interface is great, and the structuring of the framework seems very good.
I have a similar problem to http://www.silverstripe.com/site-builders-forum/flat/8313#post8313
(Moving from DEV to LIVE) where I have Silverstripe working fine on a local dev environment (with XAMPP) however after transferring the files and database (using phpmyadmin to import), I came across a few issues:
1. Blank Page, so I added ini_set('display_errors',1), and error_reporting to E_ALL, anyway this showed up a memory overflow, so I upped the mem to 60M, then 70M (as the mem management is a little screwey atm, I'm sure this will be ironed out in later versions).
2. After memory limit has increased, now get the following:
The website server has not been able to respond to your request.
------- This is when moving from the dev to live server.
Installing a fresh copy of SS works ok, providing the memory limit is high (eg. the 70M), it is running on Apache with mod_rewrite used for other scripts, however warnings are still shown by the ss installer. I would rather move across from dev to live than install fresh.
Anyone's thoughts on this would be great.
