Hi all:

I use the manual and it wotks fine, but i need change httpd.ini to:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(.gif)|(.jpg)|(.png)|(.css)|(.js)|(.php)$
RewriteCond URL (?!.?).
RewriteRule (.*) /sapphire/main.php?url=$1 

because, with the your configuration SS can´t read the css files and image paths.

My problem now is that i can´t access to administration, it says:

FATAL ERROR: None of these templates can be found:,
At line 68 in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\sapphire\core\SSViewer.php

user_error(None of these templates can be found:,,512)
line 68 of SSViewer.php

line 278 of Controller.php

line 245 of Controller.php

line 216 of Controller.php

Anybody has the same problem?

Are you using version 2.2.1 or 2.2.2, nomen? This looks a little bit like a problem that was fixed in 2.2.2...

Hi Nomen,

This is the change in question:

Have you considered upgrading to 2.2.2?

Hi Sam:

I have make the change you say. This does not work :-(

I have try to upgrade two SS sites from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 with no success. See my post. In the other SS the problems are similar. Is very frustrating for me.

Does anyone have detailed instructions for installing SilverStripe on Windows 2003 with IIS 6? I've been trying to get it to install following the instructions in this doc and with the other changes people have suggested.

I think it's the ISAPI Rewrite that's causing my problems, I've tried Helicon's Lite versions 2 & 3.

I get to the following message in the install process but it never goes any further, I either get the 404 error, a blank page which says done, or I once got a page which said that the following page wasn't available.

"mod_rewrite doesn't appear to be working. Make sure:
mod_rewrite is enabled in your httpd.conf
AllowOverride is enabled for the current path.
Please check these options, then refresh this page.If you believe that your configuration is correct, click here to proceed anyway."

Any help would be gratefully received.

You'll note that the instructions suggest that the installer errors are to be ignored.

Ultimately, all the installer is doing is adding a few lines to mysite/_config.php which you can do manually (e.g. setting database username, password), so you could try that and get the rewrite functioning.

(You could set up SilverStripe on another machine and copy the _config.php file from that)

Just an update - we have set up a test machine with Windows Server 2008 and IIS v7 and SilverStripe v2.3 appears to work well with this. Testing most welcome!

Instructions, etc;
