Hello to the Silverstripe Community
I looked into Silverstripe as it appears to the best CMS I can find. However, I have now spent over 25 hrs reading support forms, deleting and re-installing the files, editing code, contacting my host provider, reading through .php files etc.
I either get:
Internal Server Error
A Blank Screen
asked to download install.php
A Large headache
The closest I have come to an install is "Building Database Schema..."
I have ensured with my web provider that the server meets all the requirements. All the fields are GREEN on the install.php, and the database info checks out.
The only issue is that the installer says that it cannot determine with webserver I am running, and that it can't tell if mod_rewrite is installed. The server config has the following:
OPTIONS Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
1. I would love to know which FILES to delete/rewrite manually so that I can try to re-install without deleting all 8.0MB and 2,500 or so files (very time and resource consuming).
2. I would love to see a better install documentation that doesn't just say click and it is installed (I wish it worked like magic).
I really hope this isn't a typical problem, as I chose to use a CMS so that I didn't have to dig out all my computer science textbooks from 10 years ago.
Thanks for your time and any insight that you can provide.
