I have been working on this since 7 this morning and I am about to give up on silver stripe even though I really like the system.

Anyway on to my problem/s and I am going to start from the top.

Step 1 Installation:

I got it to install by setting the mysite, assets, tutorial and .htaccess to 777 after installation I changed everything back to 755 except assets...and that seemed to work fine image uploading worked, I could create pages insert images and edit content great I was happy.

Step 2. 1 hour later still adding content

the content editor in the backend completely stopped working I press enter and it expands the box out huge and doesnt let me type or if I add an image it stretches it way out...its driving me crazy and it happened twice on the first install and again the second time I reinstalled it.

What browser/OS are you using?

I know there is a bug that creeps up the odd time -

It doesn't happen a lot, but a few do get stung with it.

Firefox 3 and IE7

Well I got it to work but I am still having an issue
by changing the owner of the assets folder and everything in it to apache it now works but that gives me a problem I cant ftp to that folder and put pictures in it because the owner has changed.
