    Installing New SilverStripe 3.0.1 (Stable) on Wamp Server 2.2E Link to this post

    Read really good things about SilverStripe.

    Decided to install it, and try it. Dowloaded 3.0.1 CMS stable version and installed it on Wamp 2.2E (Apache 2.2.22, PHP 5.4.3, mySQL 5.5.24), on Windows XP SP3.

    ISSUES: 1) Started to create/modify "pages", and NO FIELD for "Content", under "Page Name"... "Navigation label".
    2) Created a page under "About us" (i.e. "What We Do"), and pressed "save DRAFT". Browser went to the "site", and showed a page under "About Us", but with name "New Page" (?). I was expecting a "Waht We Do" page name under "About Us".
    3) On the left side of the screen (i.e. "Pages", "files", "settings" and so on), tried to click on another tab (e.g being in the "page" part, cliked on "settiings" but it would not go there. The only way was to "refresh" the page.

    Not expecting these problems for a brand new installation on a clean wamp installation (there is nothing else there). Database permissions?... Help!... would like to give SilverStripe a BIG try.

    Installation without major problems (fixing the "fileinfo.dll" message, and activating Apache's module "rewrite_module". Again no complaints from the SilverStripe installer (install.php I believe).

    Found the problem.

    The url where "pages" modifications, contents not showing, and left tree not working properly:

    "http://localhost/silverstripe/index.php/admin/pages" <<-- index.php! (1).

    URL working properly:

    "http://localhost/silverstripe/admin"

    Not sure why I had index.php in there...

    Many thanks, JCo.

    index.php is inserted into the links if silverstripe could not detect mod_rewrite during the installation.

    Thank you DesignerX,
    The problem was not Windows (or WAMP), it was the URL.

    After using the "correct" URL (i.e. w/o "index.php" in the middle), everything is working fine and Dandy!

    So I am having fun here

    Hi there,

    I'm new here using SilverStripe - I had the same problem and without the index.php it works fine but how do I use now links like "href=about_us" if my installation thinks mod_rewrite is not enabled (which is not true...) I use XAMPP 1.8.0

    Thanks,

    L

    I've had the same problem on all my Windows dev machines, affecting Wampserver, XAMPP and EasyPHP. mod_rewrite doesn't seem to be detected on the home page (all others pages are fine).

    We've discovered that this issue doesn't occur on Apache version 2.2.21 (bundled with Wampserver 2.2d) or older. If you downgrade then you shouldn't have an issue.

    You can download Wampserver 2.2d at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wampserver/files/WampServer%202/WampServer%202.2/
