Okay firstly: I am a complete newbie to creating and managing websites (although I have plenty of experience with programming in general, being my day job). I ran into SilverStripe and did a bit of exploring, did the tutorials and it looks pretty good so far for my application.
I am trying to get subsites working, as my website requires subdomains and after scouring the forums it appears that the subsites module is the right solution.
The goal is to have both:
working, with CMS functionality for both sites, but different templates / layout etc.
I've downloaded the latest module version, and uploaded it straight to the server: ~/www/subsites/
The Subsites tab comes up in the CMS editor, however I don't exactly know what the "Create intranet" toolbar on the side is used for. When I try to create my subdomain, it comes up with the error:
Fatal error: Call to a member function createInstance() on a non-object in /home/zap49407/public_html/subsites/code/SubsiteAdmin.php on line 113
So I looked at the code, and it really didn't make a whole lot of sense...
What could I be doing wrong?? Do I have to create folders/templates inside my www/ dir to get mysubdomain.myhostname.com to work?
Do I need to STFU, RTFM and stop being a n00b?? probably...
Throw a n00b a bone, please? :D
