    Downloading addon's Link to this post

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I cannot find how to download addon's. I have got this far:
    http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons/silverstripe/sqlite3
    but there is no obvious download button or similar.
    Regards

    Re: Downloading addon's Link to this post

    Basically there are two ways to download SilverStripe modules from addons.

    1. The 'oldfashioned way' by downloading the source code from the GitHub repository in a Zip file. In this case the 'Homepage' link on the addon page will lead you there: https://github.com/silverstripe-labs/silverstripe-sqlite3.git. To the bottom right you will find the download button.

    Note: an older version of SilverStripe might need a different version/branch of the module. Check the Readme documentation and if necessary use the top left button for the right branch before you download.

    2. The 'modern way', by using Composer - software that will download the module for you based on a composer.json configuration file. If you opt for composer, you can scroll down the addons page and copy the 'require' reference for the correct branch/version to add to your composer.json file. For information on how to use composer checkout the docs here: http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/topics/modules#installation

    All this might look a bit complex, but in the long run investing in Composer pays of, because once you create your own set of composer.json files, it's a breeze to build custom setups using the newest updates, and install in a wink

    Thanks for your help. Sorry I missed seeing download button. My Silverstripe is now installed OK using ubuntu/ lighttpd/ sqlite. Had to add date.timezone to two php.ini files and all going except URL rewrite support.
