There's something weird at your end, possibly due to your PHP version (5.0.5).

The following code in sapphire/security/Permission.php (static function groupList) fails:

if($groups) foreach($groups as $group) $groupList[] = $group->ID;

For somereason the foreach doesn't run.

I've put a hack in your code below this line:

$groupList[] = 1;

I can now login, but it now assumes every member of your site is an admin (you are the only user, so this is kinda okay for now).

I'll see if someone else can shed light on this....

i reinstalled everything... and my mysite/_config.php file looks like this:


global $project;
$project = 'mysite';

global $databaseConfig;
$databaseConfig = array(
"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
"server" => "localhost",
"username" => "<username>",
"password" => "<password>",
"database" => "<database name>",


so... Sigurd, that line you mentioned (Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin','password'); ) is not there. where should it go?

Seems to be serious bugs in the sapphire security module.

PHP 5.0.5-Debian-0.8~sarge1 (cli) (built: Oct 27 2005 10:43:05)

I got the errors: "You can't access that part of the CMS" on first login with admin/password.

I fixed that by overriding the groupID patch
When trying to access security groups via Security section, I now get:

Fatal error: Cannot access protected property TextField::$value in /home/www/ispconfig/web6/web/silverstripe-v2.0/sapphire/forms/TableField.php on line 537

I have tried to override this by setting

public static $currentController

in sapphire/core/control/Controller.php

but this doesn't appear to work.

Can you advise on a fix for this bug and/or advise if it is fixed in 2.0.1rc?
Is this release genuinely stable or is it really beta?

Which version are you using?

Could you please try 2.0.1rc7 and see if it works for you, then we can confirm that this was fixed. :-)

Hi Sean,
The issue seems to be with PHP 5.0.5

I have built a new test install with PHP 5.2.0 and Silverstripe 2.0.1rc7 and it works without errors.

Andy is taking a look at my PHP 5.0.5 server to see if he can get 2.0.2 working on it tomorrow I think.

These problems should now be all fixed. They'll be fixed in the daily build tonight, and will be in 2.0.2.

I am having the same problem when opening the newly installed CMS

Fatal error: Cannot access protected property Controller::$currentController in /...../sapphire/security/Security.php on line 108

I have changed /mysite/_config.php, and added:

I can't access the CMS. What can I do???
