I have tried to install SilverStripe v3.0.5 on a NetRegistry domain and can't access the CMS page once the install has completed. I got a few warnings when trying to install including -
fileinfo support - fileinfo should be enbled in PHP;
magic_quotes_gpc option - magic_quotes_gpc is set to '1' in php.ini and
URM rewriting support - you need mod_rewrite to use friendly URL's with SilverStripe
but proceeded anyway and the install seemed to work. I then deleted in the installation files and got to the "Your Site Name" page (http://www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/index.php/) but when I clicked on the link to "you can edit this page by opening the CMS" I get a Page not found on http://www.xxxxxxxxx.com.au/admin/install.php
I've run the install twice with the same result.
As mentioned the webhost is NetRegistry and I'm wondering whether it is because the files are installed in a directory called "public_html" rather than the root directory. I note in the forum others have had trouble installing SilverStripe on NetRegistry and it isn't well supported. I'm very new to this so any help will be greatly appreciated.
Another thought on why this is happening is that I FTP'ed the site I had built locally to the webhost rather than just uploading the SilverStripe content and then uploading my particularly pages. I've only done this once before and can't remember how I'm supposed to upload the site and get it running.
My fault - I discovered that by uploading and extracting SilverStripe to the public_html folder rather than coping all files from my local machine (C:\wamp\www\silverstripe) that the install worked correctly and I could access the CMS on the server. My fault entirely. I was just confused since the webhost I have previously used supported SilverStripe and thus I could install it from within the site.
