Mollom does not seem to be installing ..well nothing showing in the admin area.

when i do dev/build i cannot see any tables relating to mollom are created.

I have used composer to download spamprotection and mollom.
I have created a yml file in eg: mysite -> _config ->spamprotection.yml

name: spamprotection
  default_spam_protector: MollomSpamProtector
  public_key: <a2the-rest-of- my-key-ends-here>
  private_key: <43the-rest-of- my-key-ends-here>

i do dev/build?flush=1 but the results don't show anything relating to Mollom

..there used to be a tab in the admin, so you knew it was installed

I always managed to get it installed before.

this is my first attempt since we can't use the _config.php any more

// Configure Mollom API keys
//these are for *.myserverdomain and nothing else
//please signup for you free one at eg add site if you wish to use mollom

Am i doing something wrong regards to the yml file maybe ...i don't have any errors.

I have looked at tickets on github

it should be FormSpamProtectionExtension: not FormSpamProtection

not that iit has made any difference.

I have just been trying to install mollom and finding it quite confusing.
I put the same details in the spamprotection.yml

After a lot of errors the main problem seemed to be that there was no file in folder vendor/mollom/client.
I downloaded the module and put it in this folder and this has made the errors go away.
Not sure if that was a problem for you also?

I also don't get a menu item in admin either.

I haven't being able to work out where I put the instruction below from the SpamProtection module from (I am rather new to silverstripe, probably obvious to others), can someone tell me?

To add spam protection to your form instance call enableSpamProtection.

// your existing form code
$form = new Form( .. );
