    1st Install - parsing error Link to this post

    Installed SS

    - entered db details
    - checked the radio button 'template design' instead of default.

    When I enter the root of the folder where SS is installed it get this:

    http://www.url.nl/mf

    XML Parsing error

    Whats wrong?
    Do I need to change the template first?

    XML parsing errors are due to non-compliant xhtml. What template design did you choose?

    You can change the template by editing /mysite/_config.php, and choosing from a folder name that is under /themes/.
    If you can't get your custom one to work, try 'blackcandy' first to get started.

    When you change the theme, you need to visit the site with ?flush=all appended to the URL. (see http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=themes:developing)

    I did not choose any theme, It doesnt ask that question in the installation.

    _config.php says:
    <?php

    global $project;
    $project = 'mysite';

    global $database;
    $database = "";

    require_once("conf/ConfigureFromEnv.php");

    // This line set's the current theme. More themes can be
    // downloaded from http://www.silverstripe.com/themes/
    SSViewer::set_theme('blackcandy');

    ?>
    So it is deafult, but why doenst the site work :s

    What version of Silverstripe did you download? I can remember one version had that error, but I think that has been fixed now.
