Hi - Sorry, I'm new to SS and a I'm a designer so my techie skills are not great ... but I have a couple of questions on installing SS.

1) I installed SS with the Windows Installer. After installing I keep getting a popup saying I don't have LIBEAY32.dll?

2) How do I set up multiple sites to use SS (each with their own admin)? Obviously the installer has set up one site in a directory on my hard drive, but how do I now set-up another site with SS - do I just copy a bunch of files, or do I run another installer??

3) what files/folders do I need to upload to the live webserver in order for the site and cms admin to run? The live webserver already has PHP5 and MySql installed.

Sorry if these are newbie questions - any help on any of these would be much appreciated. SS looks ideal and I'm looking forward to using it

Hi ToyFruit,

Welcome to SilverStripe! :)

> 1) I installed SS with the Windows Installer. After installing I keep getting a popup saying I don't have LIBEAY32.dll?

I think the fix is here: [url]http://www.silverstripe.com/core-team-discussion/flat/2486?start=8#post3333[/url] :)

Hmm.. I've not used the Winodws installer much. I usually just download the php installer and copy into a new folder in my htdocs folder and then run the php install script.

I think all the ones in c:\httpd\htdocs\ (mysite, jsparty, sapphire especially).

SilverStripe is indeed nice. I hope things work on for you,
