Thank you so much for responding to my request for help~ I waited a week for an answer, for someone to help me with a faulty install and inability to upload files or images to cms, and had to abandon that question, delete it and start again with just one question at a time.. duh.
I uploaded small jpgs to my website upload folder via ftp and then logged online into admin of cms and still the cms cannot find any files in that folder, as if they never existed. Therefore your suggested link to that other thread did not resolve my problem. if there are permissions to add somewhere can someone please tell me where, or offer a direct answer to the problem of why I cannot upload any files. I am not a programmer so I need fairly simple answers. Have other people not encountered this before?
I wasnt even able to install the wamp onto my local host. it stopped install half way through and I could not get any further, before permissions could get added. I could not get past the pop up: "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" My computer did not acknowledge anything past that popup, it just closed, and localhost page is blank. Is this the reason why my online cms is not working either? Is this a really hard question?
I am at the stage where I shall soon have to abandon silverstripe because it is not possible to get answers to simple installation questions, nor simple things like adding files, - via this forum....I only got referral to another thread, which did not resolve question.
So, the only thing I can think of, is to pay someone to answer my questions. Is there anyone prepared to help me with my install problems, or any other issues that crop up regarding changing themes etc.
I will need to know how to install/use silverstripe for my future projects, I currently have 3 website customers waiting for me to get silverstripe installed, so they can get a cms into action.
