first try with SS as hoping to move an exiting site. I'm testing on XAMPP 1.8.1 on win7-64 which is setup ok - running wordpress and other sites. apache 2.4.3 and php 5.4.7 with fileinfo enabled.
SS installed successfully and showed successfully themed/displayed success page; see attached screenshot_1
BUT all other pages have no themeing/css - just white with text - while *appearing* to function: ; see attached screenshot_2
When pages load firebug shows 404's for:
... and others...
the apache logs shows its not rewriting these requests - tho is redirecting the original page call. htaccess is default from the install.
Xampp is set up with virtual hosts, so location is not in xampp/htdocs. the relevant httpd-vhosts.conf block (like other working v-hosts) is:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes execCGI
#xampp 1.8.1 format:
Require all granted
and windows hosts file is configured (must be, with v-hosts, else the install/success wouldn't work, right?).
following a similar unsolved thread here [url]http://www.silverstripe.org/installing-silverstripe/show/25532[/url] i can confirm that windows/temp has a 'silverstripe-cache...' folder and i've ensured all permissions set. similarly set permissions on assets, tried ?flush=1, cleared cache, tried other browsers...
I'm thinking htacess due to the 404s (and yes, thos pages are installed) but aren't clever enough to figure this stuff out. maybe it doesn't like the virtual host configuration?
can anyone help with this/other ideas?
