I modified a silverstripe locally and get error when I upload to the shared host server.

The error is "The website server has not been able to respond to your request."

Anyway I tested that I can install a clean silverstripe on the server without any trouble. If I install a clean silverstripe then replace the db with the modified one. It will show the same error.

Any one knows how to fix it?

Add this line to your _config.php (in the mysite directory) on the server:


Then, refresh the page to see the error, which should be a bit more descriptive now.

Paste the error in this thread if you can't figure it out!

problem identified, it's mysql db name case sensitive issue. my local machine is running windows and export all table names on lower case. in the model, all table names actually have capital letters. this causes problem on the *unix host.
