OK, I'm pretty new to all this ...
I got silverstripe about a month ago, got wamp server on my pc (running Vista, and using firefox for browsing just in case thats relevant)
installed it and worked my way throught the tutorials.

Now I want to build another website. I backed up the initial silverstripe file when i first unzipped it but have since lost that file, so I copied the one I installed and was working on for the tutorials (not sure if thats a good idea or not but it seemed like it was worth a try) ...
file structure:
...../wamp
........../www
.............../SilverStripe
.............../NewSite
Ran the install.php file in the newsite folder and it straight away came up with a page titled 'PHP 5 is Required' with a whole lot of code on it ...
I remember having the same problem when I did the first install, I found the solution for it at the time and book marked the page I found it on but that page has since vanished and I've just spent about 2 hours searching for a solution to the problem, and I can't remember what it was that I did to fix it the first time.

SO my questions are, does anyone have a way to fix the php 5 required thing and get the install to work? And is copying a previous install a viable way of starting a new site?

Any help would be great.
Thanks

ok i managed to get a nice new copy of the silverstripe file freshly unzipped to work with, but still getting the php 5 is required thing with a page of code, I wouldn't have a clue where to start looking for error messages in all of this, but this is what comes up on the page:

I know I had this problem with the first attempt at installing SS and the fix was something really simple and easy but I can't find it anywhere now, been searching for about 5 hours now ....
