Please help me. The server is running:
mysql 4.1.21
Apache/1.3.37 (Unix) mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ mod_ssl/2.8.28 OpenSSL/0.9.7a PHP-CGI/0.1.

I added AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
in my .htaccess.

When i run the installation script the following error occurs:

# Creating 'assets' folder...
# Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
# Creating '.htaccess' file...
# Building database schema...

Fatal error: Call to undefined method DB::isactive() in /home/biscani/public_html/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 91

Did i something wrong?

Thanks for any help

Me again :) The problem dissapears when i copied the installation files and folders to a public_html/subfolder. Is there any way to install into the public_html folder?

does it work, if you install silverstripe, then manually move the files up a folder?

possibly file permissions of public_html are to blame, but i'm out on a limb here :P

are you sure you don't have relics of other silverstripe websites or php files that are possibly confusing it "nearby" in the filesystem?
