....but I'm obviously lacking somewhere. I've tried to install SS about 3 times now, twice with the online windows installer and once from the stable download. I've placed the files in a local folder I use for websites that I'm developing, and I've installed MySql along with Microsoft SQL Server 2008, IIS, and Apache (just for my experimental purposes). I still cannot access anything in the SS files, other than some code that comes up on a white screen when I click the index.php file. I can't seem to access any type of admin screen, or any type of editing GUI. The video that showed the capabilities of SS made me really want to work with this program (I can code a website, but this seems much faster and more convenient), but perhaps I've misunderstood how the interface is supposed to work. I'm picturing downloading this zip file, unzipping, clicking an installer or unpacking the files, and then clicking on a link that will take me to the interface where I can point SS toward the files I want to manipulate. But it doesn't seem that it works as such. Any help would be awesome. Think as though you're explaining it to a child.... That should help make sure I understand.
The video that was produced to show the capabilities of SS was really great. Maybe a video like that for the installation of SS would be a great addition to the site. If there is one, I didn't see it, so feel free to point me to it.
If I seem like a newb, I am....to CMS's. All help is appreciated..... Thanks.
