I've just chucked wamp onto my laptop and have downloaded v2.2.2, and it all went well yesterday. Fantastic really!

Then I decided I would start a new project this afternoon, so I extracted the silverstripe-v2.2.2 files into the /www file again and renamed it (for reference purposes /www/fleetwood

It wasn't very happy about this, so I decided to delete the /fleetwood folder and just work on the one project. Now nothing will work.

I have even gone as far as uninstalling wamp and installing it again.

So the issue:

What is happening is I am going thru the installation process, and is getting to the rewrite test part and throws a Helen Clarke (I'll leave that up to your imagination).

Warning: file_get_contents(http://localhost:3000/fleetwood/InstallerTest/testrewrite) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. in C:\wamp\www\fleetwood\rewritetest.php on line 47

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\wamp\www\fleetwood\rewritetest.php on line 47

I pretty much gave up and just wiped the /rewritetest.php extension hoping it would just show up, and nothing. Blank. I even added /security/login, but to no avail.

Can anyone please help out a n00b?

(Whilst I say n00b the core development team all know me..... see if you can guess who I am....)

hey kiel, how have you been? we should catch up for a coffee at cubita sometime, they've got hot new staff ;D

for your problem: did you perhaps leave the .htaccess file in place when deleting everything? perhaps your shell or FTP-app doesn't show those by default - and an existing .htaccess could confuse the installer. perhaps try to delete the parent folder in which the silverstripe installation was contained?
