I am totally new here. I made a successfull install of SS in a ../silverstripe folder on my site.
When I http to mysite.com/silverstripe, I get a list of files.
However, if I go to mysite.com/silverstripe/anytext then I site the default site with a "page not found" page. From them I can navigate perfectly within the site.
If I navigate to mysite.com/silverstripe/admin, I get the admin page fine.
Is this a .htacces porblem ? A folder permission problem ?
Here is the content of the .htaccess file:
Thank you Grilldan.
This was definitely not an insult, just a comment.
Unfortunately, your answer does not reply to the question. I know how to reach the test site, and your suggestion takes me to the "Page not found" page.
I'd like SS to answer to the url www.idevlop.com/silverstripe (without slash) by providing the Home page, like anyone would expect.
After googling I tried adding
to the .htaccess.
This indeed prevents browsing, but by raising an Error 403 with the www.idevlop.com/silverstripe. Not ideal yet.
1) I had changed the homepage url to "accueil" (same as home, in French) and I didn't know that keeping the homepage url to home was critical.
2) Following Mihkel's suggestion, I modified the part of .htaccess generated by Silverstripe installation, changing DirectorySlash from off to on.
I have the same question and am happy that changing this setting seems to resolve it. But I'm a bit reluctant to do this as presumably it has been set like this for a reason and I don't want to break anything. For those of us who have tried this change- have you noticed if anything else gets broken or is it all good news from now on?
