I had successfully installed silverstripe and run it on my windows based wamp localhost. I was able to install a basic version of silverstripe via my cpanel softaculous, but as soon as I uploaded extensions via ftp to my webserver (that uses Linux)then my website would not open. the url said-
The requested URL /silverstripe/sapphire/main.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I asked in this forum last week: can someone please advise me if I should uninstall silverstripe from my webserver and start again, as need to know next step...
I also wondered if my control panel, which auto installed to a folder called "stripe" caused any conflict too - especially if local host files use the folder name silverstripe?
Well I waited more than a week but no-one replied to this question, so I looked up someone on the silverstripe network and emailed them for a possible solution:
Richard very kindly suggested these steps for me, so in case anyone else has a similar problem, you could try this. I havent done it yet but hopefully it will work: (thank you Richard)
Because of the not found error, and the fact that I had used an auto install cpanel version of silverstripe on my webserver, I should first of all uninstall that and start again by downloading a linux version of silverstripe, and then upload that latest version/install that basic system on my webserver, creating a clean slate. Then, I should migrate all the silverstripe folders to top root level of website public html folder, (because my webserver had all of silverstripe files in a subfolder called stripe). There is a youtube video showing how to do this. (great video) Then next step is to edit and re-upload the htaccess file relating to this line of code: RewriteBase /silverstripe - so just remove the /silverstripe bit, (when it is moved to top level folder).. Then lastly I should be able to ftp transfer the extensions folders which should not interfere with the visibility of the site.
Alas, I did the above, but got this:

Looks like I need the services of a programmer, is there anyone in the whole world, that is willing to help me? I can give them access to do the job and would even pay for your time if you want to be paid?
