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:
/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess

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:
- admin

For example:
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.

Anyhow, any help appreciated.

Thanks!

Did you follow the instructions?

On a Mac you can run those instructions in the terminal. Open the terminal application (in Applications/Utilities) and type the 2 lines that it reports...

chmod g+w /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess
chgrp admin /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/.htaccess

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.

Will try your solution Willr.

Thanks!
