Okay - I've installed all the software I need and SilverStripe says it is installed. MySql, PHP all to the right specs.
1st question: how do I access the control panel? I see http://localhost a lot, but am wondering if I am designing SilverStripe sites for multiple people if this is the universal control panel or is there a domain specific way to get to the control panel?
2nd question: I go to http://localhost/ and log in using the SilverStripe user name and password. Here is the error I get:
Error accessing the OLE registry.
/iisHelp/common/500-100.asp, line 17
I'm sure I'm an idiot and just missed something somewhere. Can anyone help!!
