Installed SS

- entered db details
- checked the radio button 'template design' instead of default.

When I enter the root of the folder where SS is installed it get this:

XML Parsing error

Whats wrong?
Do I need to change the template first?

XML parsing errors are due to non-compliant xhtml. What template design did you choose?

You can change the template by editing /mysite/_config.php, and choosing from a folder name that is under /themes/.
If you can't get your custom one to work, try 'blackcandy' first to get started.

When you change the theme, you need to visit the site with ?flush=all appended to the URL. (see http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=themes:developing)

I did not choose any theme, It doesnt ask that question in the installation.

_config.php says:
<?php

global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $database;
$database = "";

require_once("conf/ConfigureFromEnv.php");

// This line set's the current theme. More themes can be
// downloaded from http://www.silverstripe.com/themes/
SSViewer::set_theme('blackcandy');

?>
So it is deafult, but why doenst the site work :s

What version of Silverstripe did you download? I can remember one version had that error, but I think that has been fixed now.
