I am new to SilverStripe - and after installation All I get is

Fatal error: Cannot create references to/from string offsets nor overloaded objects in /Library/WebServer/Documents/Development/resources/SilverStripe/sapphire/core/Session.php on line 93

Any ideas what could be causing this?

I have installed the latest version of the SilverStripe

I ran into a similar problem today (with the same error message), but not during installation.

I was accessing a page using SESSION vars and then one from SS on the same domain.

In my case it was, because register_globals was set to On in my hosting environment. A php.ini with register_globals = Off in the php dir of this other page (and just to be sure one into the sapphire dir) cured my problem.
