Well as frustrated of working on this as I am, I seem to be glutton for punishment...
Was setup and running with the daily build + forum ok (eventually), but the default blog and ecommerce didnt work, so upgraded the ecommerce from SVN and got it to install, but still didnt actually function...error
So I decided to rip the whole install out and start again, this time using all the files from the SVN repo.. end up with this openID error (I actually just deleted the openID folder to get around this error before, but seems stupid to have to do that)
Warning: require_once(Auth/OpenID.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/andy.net.nz/httpdocs/auth_openid/code/Auth/OpenID/Consumer.php on line 163
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Auth/OpenID.php' (include_path='.:') in /var/www/vhosts/andy.net.nz/httpdocs/auth_openid/code/Auth/OpenID/Consumer.php on line 163
So really my first question is, am I too early? I have had close on 15 errors, ranging from install thru to modules... Is anyone successfully using SilverStripe to run a site or client sites? It seems to me that its gonna need an additional solid 6 months to even get the current features working 99%. The taste I have had of SS has been both sweet and sour, on one hand it looks ideal for client managed sites, due to its ease of use, but struth, its not exactly a clean install... hack this file, hack that, use v0.1 of this with v0.345 of that...
All I want is a light at the end of the tunnel.... Is anyone actually using SS on an apache server with php5+ and Mysql running the core files and all the available modules, WITHOUT major hacking to get them working?
If the answer is 'yes', I am too early to use this as a professional solution, then what other CMS solutions can people recommend with a similar client usability level?
