    Install help! Link to this post

    Hello!
    I just found this CMS after searching through the interwebs for a good one and this one looks really good, my website has its server run linux so i downloaded the linux install files and unzipped em with alzip and then sent them to my server with filezilla. Then i went onto my site and it just loaded a blank page :/ I can get onto the install by typing domain.com/install.php and that works but the index wont work and i want to get onto the index page :S So can anyone tell me why this is happening???
    Anyway thanks in advance and to any experienced silverstripe users is this cms any good and worth the effort, i only want a simple site so im not bothered about weird things xD

    Do you know if your hosting has mod rewrite?

    what do you get if you try to access http://www.yoursite.com/sapphire/main.php?url=home

    I have the exact same problem. My host doesn't allow me to turn on that mod_rewrite rule so I can"t use this otherwise excellent cms. I would say that for making this cms more accessible there should be a workaround for this. Should be possible.

    mod_rewrite as of 2.3.1 is not required. For more information read the blog post - http://www.silverstripe.org/silverstripe-2-3-1-eases-installation-and-provides-protection-against-website-comment-spam/.

    If you do not have mod_rewrite your URLs will look like website.com/index.php/about-us. See the changeset here - http://open.silverstripe.com/browser/phpinstaller/branches/2.3/index.php?rev=72495

    Strange thing is that the installer will not continue as long as this mod_rewrite is not fixed. Couldn't the cms work with an .htaccess file? Sort of as a backup maybe.
