Hello I just installed silverstripe and have to say I love it but Im trying to install a new theme but when ever I add SSViewer::set_theme("olivesunset"); to my config file nothing works I did ?flush=1 here is the contents of my config file.


* This file is needed to identify this as a SilverStripe module
// Extend the Member with e-commerce related fields.
DataObject::add_extension('Member', 'EcommerceRole');

Director::addRules(50, array(
   ShoppingCart_Controller::$URLSegment . '/$Action/$ID' => 'ShoppingCart_Controller'


// This is the default shipping method class - SimpleShippingModifier.
// To use your own one, copy this line, with the second argument as your
// custom shipping class into mysite/_config.php - this will override
// SimpleShippingModifier

// Add additional fields to the MemberTableField in the CMS for e-commerce.
MemberTableField::addPermissions(array('show', 'export'));
   'Address' => 'Address',
   'AddressLine2' => 'Address Line 2',
   'HomePhone' => 'Home Phone',
   'MobilePhone' => 'Mobile Phone',
   'City' => 'City',
   'Country' => 'Country'


Thanks in advance

I believe you are entering it in the _config file for the ecommerce module rather then the _config file under the mysite folder? I dont know why that would be an issue but perhaps try that

There is NO _config.php file under mysite in version 2.2.2....

Have you run through the installer?? There is no 'file' the _config file is created when you use the installer.

I can vouch for Luiyis - there is no _config.php file in the mysite folder in the 2.2.2 version.

I've checked my Godaddy installed version (I assume its been correctly installed by their application installer)

Can someone supply the code thats contained on this page, so I can create my own _confiq file.

Yep this seems to be an issue with how GoDaddys installer for SS works.

You can see an outline of an _config.php file here -
