When I try to run install.php I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/www/public_html/web/install.php on line 536

What should I do? Any help would be great!

Thank you!

I wonder if you are using PHP4? What version are you using? Looking at install.php, you can probably take out the if { } and get passed that particular parse error, but I think there may be something wrong with your server config that will mean you won't get much further;

535: // Populate initial content
536: if(!DB::query("SELECT ID FROM SiteTree WHERE URLSegment = 'about-us'")->value()) {
537: echo "<li>Populating initial content and administrative account</li>";
538:    flush();
539:
540: $dbAdmin->populate();
541: }

Keep line 540 to populate the content but lose everything else.

Chances are you're using PHP4, if you can, modify the .htaccess file on your host and add this line - provided that your host also has PHP5 alongside 4. I had the same problem.

AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php

Have you tried using the latest release candidate (rc5) as of this time?

http://www.silverstripe.com/assets/rc/silverstripe-v2.0.1-rc5.tar.gz

Please let us know if you're still getting the same problem with this version.

pabben: can you not put a seperate .htaccess file in the directory where you have SilverStripe installed?
