I love SS2, it is by far the best opensource CMS I've come across. I have a problem I hope someone here can help with. An ex-colleague installed Silverstripe and modded it to form the basis of our website. I want to be able to run a duplicate of this site on my laptop so I can experiment with some changes we are thinking of implementing. I have installed xampp, and both php and mysql work fine, and I have also installed the raw silverstripe and that works fine too.
The problem I have, is that I'm a virtual beginner when it comes to MySQL. So I have a copy of the file-tree/directories containing all of our site details, and I also have "mydatabase.sql" but I don't know how to make them work on my laptop!
The normal clean SS2 runs fine in
but when I replace that with
I just get a list of files and folders in the directory, and then when I click on them, I get "object not found".
I expect I'm missing something blindingly obvious, but it's been a few years since I did any serious web dev and I was hoping someone here might take pity on me and point me in the right direction!
Any ideas? Thanks,
