I don't wan't to use Joomla :-) And like the Conzept from silverstripe. Do you have a Solution to install silverstripe on IIS.
I think the only problem I have is the "rewrite" - I can't use the free rewrite ISAPI dll, cause I'm working on a 64 Bit Server.
I installed silverstripe
-> PHP works well, no error
-> MySql works well, the database is full and looks perfekt
-> The write permissions on IIS are set and yout Installingroutine was writing the .htaccess
-> Starting Silverstripe result in error, cause the rewrite isn't working.
developing solutions on iis is great becouse iis ability of the debugging pages.
but iis lacks the ability of having a cms. (-> dnn) and is 'harder to get' on a hoster.
but if i want to make pages in 'open web' i prefer an environment which is 'easyer to have' on a hoster.
here silverstripe is a very very very good alternative :-)
having a debugging development environment too, would make things perfect...
i've read some notes about PhpDesigner 2008 which claims to have an easy debugging environment on php.
can anyone confirm this? http://www.mpsoftware.dk/phpdesigner.php

debugging on IIS is easy -> I Use Eclipse, I use Eclipse also for Java/Tomcat works very well!
The Installation of silverstripe I haven't debugged, I was just looking in the php error Logfile --> No Error, only the message, that the page wasn't found, that's logic, cause rewrite isn't working on IIS.
Other CMS Software is working well like Joomla or xt-commerce, so I wonder, why silverstripe has no Solution to turn off rewrite! Perhaps it's simple to switch of the rewrite!?
Just a note - we don't have a copy of Windows 2003 and IIS 6 to test SilverStripe, however we do know that SilverStripe works on Windows 2008 / IIS 7, which is the current versions of these Microsoft technologies.
