    Install completes then "...page couldn't be found." Link to this post

    OS-X Snow Leopard. I've got a lot of PHP code which works perfectly.
    I like the look of SilverStripe and the install went smoothly. I have
    it running in a apache named-virtual-host so that the SilverStripe
    directory is the document root.

    After the install apparently completes successfully, (and tries
    to redirect to the post-install page?) all I get is a page that
    is empty except for the message, "The requested page couldn't be found."

    Any hints?

    Thanks.

    Same problem here. I have been working through the install for over an hour. What a pain.

    Look here: http://www.silverstripe.org/installing-silverstripe/show/271239#post271239

    The reason is that you probably had some errors. But the installer already has created all the tables.

    You have to delete all the tables from the silverstripe database using phpmadmin or the Mysql administrator from MySQL site, then reinstall - Go directly to your install.php, do not try to access any other page in the site, not even the homepage or the root and then do a reinstall.

    In my case everything went fine after that.

    I am running MAMP now by the way, because entropy had some errors - and nobody on the entropy forum is willing or able to clarify. Installing in MAMP was a breeze.

    Thanks yurigoul. I moved the site content to the document root, rather than my ~username site. Deleted all of the tables and ran install.php again. Everything works fine now. I am running Snow Leapard by the way.

    Off to installing extension modules.

    Cheers,
    John
