    Don't use the tutorial files! Link to this post

    Dont use the tutorial files, go to http://ssorg.bigbird.silverstripe.com/installing-silverstripe/show/253631#post253631 and change your code to use one of the downloadable themes.

    By all means go through the tutorials but if like me and your on a mac and you chose the tutorial "blank" install then it won't work (loads of problems for me anyway)

    After I stoped using the /tutorial folder, all my errors and blank pages went away.

    Good luck

    Hi Pyper,
    thanks for your words of warning...Shame I only read them after altering my _config.php file! Now I have a blank page and no idea how to get my old _config.php file back. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hi mio, dont worry if you have changed your _config.php file just replace it or make a new one:

    <?php

    global $project;
    $project = 'mysite';
    SSViewer::set_theme("whatever theme you want to use");

    global $databaseConfig;
    $databaseConfig = array(
       "type" => "MySQLDatabase",
       "server" => "localhost",
       "username" => "root",
       "password" => "root",
       "database" => "SS_mysite",
    );

    ?>

    Also remember to enter http://localhost:8888/silverstripe/db/build?flush=1 afterward so that it rebuilds everything.

    Hope that helps,
    Stuart.
