Hi everyone

Whenever I try to get the database to update by using localhost/dev/build in the browser, I just get the browser telling me that the page doesn't exist.

My site isn't at the root of the server so I've tried localhost/mysite/dev/build before diverting back to the standard one above. I've also tried db/build, with and without a slash on the end, and 3 different browsers, to the same result.

Obviously, this is causing problems when I'm trying to make changes to the backend and they have no effect because the database hasn't updated.

Does anybody know why this might be happening and how I get around this (or get it working)?

Thanks

could try...

index.php/dev/build

(find the index.php in the silverstripe download if you've deleted it)

What is the URL of the page you have when you're on the home page? And like swaiba said, if you haven't got mod_rewrite then you have to prefix index.php
