Found a bug during install:

When you installed the whole CMS, logged-in to delete the install files... ok that's done.. now i click on something like: go to "THE CMS", but the href is wrong: it goes to"admin//" .. instead of

another tiny thing:
date time zone was not correctly set in my php.ini on my shared hosting. Since i could not access the php.ini, you should add this to the .htaccess:

php_value date.timezone "Europe/Amsterdam"

and refresh the install.php again!

Hi borriej,

Thanks for that. We are aware of the href issue and it's currently awaiting a fix in our bug tracker:

In terms of the date.timezone issue, this is a general PHP requirement to have it set correctly. As far as I'm aware, PHP 5.4 defaults the timezone to UTC if it's not set, instead of throwing a warning, which is why the SilverStripe installer has it as a requirement to be set correctly.
