Goosh, am i stupped with this thing.... Ive been "gossing" all weekend with SS and then it suddenly stopped working. So i completely reinstalled MAMP and SS and tried to reinstall SS. Now it gives me this:
User 'sabinfarley' needs to be able to write to this file:
The file is currently owned by 'root'. We recommend that you make the file group-writeable and change the group to one of these groups:
chmod g+w /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess
chgrp admin /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess
How in the world do i do that?
Hres a recap. I HAVE to learn SS (client requierement) but this is really not easy. Those server pitfalls are really slowing the learning curve.

Still s(t)uck with that .htaccess write permission..... Really, this is not and EASY thing. I have turned in circles for HOURS before event being able to open SS..... (which i havent been able since it jammed!).
I am the author of the post. I solved the problem by going backward. I mean, what did i do before the problem happened? Thing is that when i first extracted SS into the htdocs, i left the Silverstripe folder into htdocs and accessed the CMS via localhost/silverstripe/install.php
Second time, after SS (or MAMP) crashed and stalled, i extracted SS but placed the CONTENT of silverstripe/ folder directtly into htdocs/ and tried to access the CMS via localhost/install.php
Thats when .htacess came in. Once i put silverstripe/ back into htdocs/, all worked.
