Dont use the tutorial files, go to http://ssorg.bigbird.silverstripe.com/installing-silverstripe/show/253631#post253631 and change your code to use one of the downloadable themes.
By all means go through the tutorials but if like me and your on a mac and you chose the tutorial "blank" install then it won't work (loads of problems for me anyway)
After I stoped using the /tutorial folder, all my errors and blank pages went away.
thanks for your words of warning...Shame I only read them after altering my _config.php file! Now I have a blank page and no idea how to get my old _config.php file back. Any ideas?
Hi mio, dont worry if you have changed your _config.php file just replace it or make a new one:
$project = 'mysite';
SSViewer::set_theme("whatever theme you want to use");
$databaseConfig = array(
"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
"server" => "localhost",
"username" => "root",
"password" => "root",
"database" => "SS_mysite",
Also remember to enter http://localhost:8888/silverstripe/db/build?flush=1 afterward so that it rebuilds everything.
Hope that helps,
