I installed the SS. Logged in the first time ... goofed around with the interface a bit ... then installed the Forums and Blog module.

I did the flush thing ... then it said I was logged out of the CMS.

Now when I try to log in I get the following messasge

Fatal error: Call to a member function groupBy() on a non-object in /home/dsamwm/public_html/forum/code/Forum.php on line 263

Any ideas why this is happening?

OK ... even worse now.

I deleted the Forum Directory off the server ...

Ran the

... and now the site has two completely different Fourm menus ... Forum and Forums ... and there isn't even that directory on the server!

Can anyone point me out of this nightmare?

Should I just delete the entire SS install and start over?

... grrrr ... very frustrating to find this product so hard to use when it is claimed to be so simple.

It still won't let me log into the CMS either ... :(

To be able to log in as admin, try adding this line to mysite/_config.php

Security::setDefaultAdmin("admin", "password");

If you haven't put much work into the site already, you might want to try a fresh install.

Thanks ... I did the reinstall ... same issue ...

re-did the re-install without the Forums Module ... and now the site works.

I'm running Linux/Apache ... guess there is something not quite stable with the current Forums Module.

I'll try to load it again in a couple months maybe.

It's possible that your /db/build couldn't run because you were not logged in, creating a catch22. Try installing the software with the forum directory already there alongside your uninstalled package before you hit 'install'; as you can tell from the forum you're using right now, the code is in production and so it does work :)
