I recently uploaded a new theme to my server and the documentation says to do the following:

Install

1.
Simply unpack the contents of the zip file into the /themes directory in your SilverStripe installation.
2.
Change to the theme by putting the following line in your ./mysite/_config.php:

SSViewer::set_theme("themename");

3.
Visit your homepage, ensuring you flush the cache (append ?flush=1 to the URL).

The problem I'm having is that I cannot find the _config.php file in ./mysite/

I'm using version 2.2.3. How do I switch the theme?

Did you install with the tutorial option instead?. If so then the _config file is in /tutorial/. Move this file to /mysite/ , change the $project var in that file to 'mysite' then set your theme

I cannot seem to find it either! Where exactly is this file supposed to be? Within the theme files? or within the installation files? I searched and dont have it.

If you have run through the installer it should have created it in /mysite/ or the /tutorial/ folder depending on which option you installed with. It does not come as a file in the install package - it is created in the web installer.

If you have not installed it via the web based installer you will not have the file. If you have installed and your site works then it should be in the mysite/ or tutorial/ though some hosting packages which allow you to install SS via their dashboard view may store the file elsewhere.

Thanks for the response. I installed this application through a site called http://759domains.com. The file was placed in the Tutorial directory.

HI
I also dont have the _config.php file in mysite folder or tutorial folder

I only have one in the cms folder and authiD folder.

With my site up and running, is it possible to download this file and copy it to the mysite folder ?
