I need some help getting 3.0 installed on a shared server.

everything is cleared on the install.php page, but when I click the Install Silverstripe button, I get this error...

Warning: require_once(zend_translate_railsyaml/library/Translate/Adapter/RailsYAML.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/aliyswor/public_html/framework/i18n/i18nRailsYamlAdapter.php on line 3

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'zend_translate_railsyaml/library/Translate/Adapter/RailsYAML.php' (include_path='/home/aliyswor/public_html/framework:/home/aliyswor/public_html/framework/parsers:/home/aliyswor/public_html/framework/thirdparty:.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/aliyswor/public_html/framework/i18n/i18nRailsYamlAdapter.php on line 3

Seems the zend... is missing - please help!
Thank you,

These are the files the require_once is looking for

require_once 'Zend/Translate.php';

require_once 'zend_translate_railsyaml/library/Translate/Adapter/RailsYAML.php';

This folder or files do not exist in the SS 3.0 install

I had the same error, it seemed that the files which silverstripe was looking for were there, but with a .ph extension instead of the php extension. So if you locate all files in: ..\framework\thirdparty\zend_translate_railsyaml\library\Translate and it subfolders and change the extension the installation should work again!

Thank you!

This error is still occurring with the latest download of SS 3.0.1 !! Would someone from the dev team please rename these files to the correct extension otherwise it's going to put people off upgrading or using Silverstripe 3.0.1....

Hi everyone,

We're looking into this.

It's a bit strange, because using "tar -xzf SilverStripe-cms-v3.0.2.tar.gz" doesn't produce the problems with broken extensions on my Ubuntu 11.04 server.

Could affected people please let me which OS and version they are installing SilverStripe on, and how they extracted the files and uploaded them to their servers, including software used to do so, e.g. 7zip.

My initial thoughts are that we're hitting some filesystem limit, as the path can get extremely long for the thirdparty files.

Using os x 10.8.2

Downloaded from the download page, extracted on my Mac with the unarchiver. Zipped up framework/cms and uploaded those to the server.
