Hi trying to install copied ecommerce to following these instructions:

1. Unzip this file (ecommerce-0.5.tar.gz) inside your SilverStripe installation directory.
It should be at the same level as 'jsparty', 'themes' and 'sapphire' modules.

2. Ensure the directory name for the module is 'ecommerce'.

3. Visit your SilverStripe site (you require 2.0.2+ to operate this module).

4. Add db/build to the end of the website URL. For example: http://localhost:8888/mysite/db/build.

My website is:

And I now have this error:

Website Error
There has been an error

The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

I have tried putting db/build on the end of my website link but didnt work and I dont understand how it is supposed to when I cannot even find a directory on my website called db.

Yes I am a noob and probably stuffed up somewhere please help any reply welcome.

version information:
SilverStripe (Version 2.3.2)
E-Commerce [v0.5.2] (somebody forgot to update the version number in the install instructions it says Module 0.5.1 beta)

The URL changed from db/build to dev/build in SilverStripe 2.3+
You have to be logged in to the CMS to run dev/build

How do I log in if I have an error do you have to upload the files while you are still logged in?
