I have installed silverstrip on my hosting server and so far so good it all works.
The hosting server runs cpanel and you can install modules through "fantastico delux"

However whenever i try and install something and then go the url i get a page cannot be found error.

For instance i installed phpbb and the installation url is

i sppoke to the guy that looks after my hosting and he said it was because of my .htaccess file.
when i checked it, the permission are 6 4 4 so for a test i canged it to 7 7 7 so every group has read write and executable permissions.

i tried re-installing phpbb and I still get the page cannot be found error.
I was wondering if this has something to do with the silverstrip install or is a seperate issue.

Does anybody have any ideas please?

You will need to modify your .htaccess file so that SilverStripe ignores your phpbb forum directory.
Add the following line underneath the RewriteBase line:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/blog
