First of all what a great product. I have installed, with no issues, SilverStripe on a hosted server. the problem i have is that i cannot access the admin section of the web site. When i enter the http://hostname/admin URL i receive a page cannot be found error. See Below

Page not Found

Sorry, it seems you were trying to access a page that doesn't exist.

Please check the spelling of the URL you were trying to access and try again.

I am sure this is an htaccess issue below is what i am using:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^online$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^online/.* - [L]

RewriteRule \.js$ - [L]

RewriteRule \.css$ - [L]

RewriteRule \.png$ - [L]

RewriteRule \.jpg$ - [L]

RewriteRule \.gif$ - [L]

RewriteRule \.php$ - [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteRule .* /sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]


Kind regards,

I got the same error but just added another rewrite rule and everything worked out as far as accessing the page and getting the install to complete.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^9([a-z]+)\.html$/index.php?$1

That seemed to work as far as getting the install to complete. I'm having other issues that seem to be related. I have a screen shot uploaded of what I am seeying.

Also I was just looking at the code on the admin page and if I go directly to the link: Then I get a page so there has to be some problem with the splash page or the cpanel for the cms. Have you guys ever seen this or any of the issues above?

Wow where is that support I heard about. This seems like a simple issue and I'm sure that someone can answer it.

Most likely this is a javascript error - try getting firebug and checking the debug console for errors - then we might be able to figure out what's going on. Also, try the latest daily build and see if that works for you.
