    Windows server 2003 issues Link to this post

    This is my first install with SS and having spent about 2 days getting this far I am very disillusioned with it.

    Installation locally on WAMP was successful. I have had a LOT of issues installing on Windows server 2003 with IIS6 which is the live environment.

    My learnings are:
    - add the IUSER account to the core website folder
    - to use Helicon full version not the lite version.

    In _ss_environment.php if I set it to "live" mode:
    - When I load the site http://www.mysilverstripeinstallation.com it looks OK
    - When I load the site http://www.mysilverstripeinstallation.com/index.php?flush=1 it loses all styling
    - When I load the site http://www.mysilverstripeinstallation.com/admin it doesn't load the page

    In _ss_environment.php if I set it to "dev" not live and you get this error message

    [Notice] Undefined index: REQUEST_URI ....... in \sapphire\core\SSViewer.php and the error message is:

    $thisURLRelativeToBase = Director::makeRelative(Director::absoluteURL($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']));

    reading around it is due to the base tag which doesn't load but I can't find a solution for this

    My .htaccess is:
    <Files *.ss>
    # Order deny,allow
    # Deny from all
    # Allow from

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

    I had to comment out the 3 lines in <Files *.ss> as helicon didn't allow these

    Can anyone help advise on what I can do to fix this error message please?
