since today i have a login Problem.
I can login to the cms with my name and password but than there is the silverstripe logo
and there is the text 'loading..." on the top left of the page.
But then nothing happens.

Its not a problem with the client (i try it on 3 different clients on different IP's with different OS)

Any idea?

Thanks a lot

In addition to my first post:

in dev mode

with this line in my '_config.php':


it is working without any problems and i can login to the cms.

Without the line its the same problem i describe.

I'm having the exact same symptoms running 2.3.2 beta 1.

I did a clean install on a new database, uploaded my theme which was running fine on a local MAMP setup (OS X 10.5). Then I went in and created a couple of new pages with Spanish translations then logged out again.

All seemed OK, so I then tried to get another domain (I have multiple domains) to go directly to a Spanish home page by using the Spanish home-page url. This resulted on a 403 error as I'd forgotten that I'd reset the .htaccess to restrict things until I have the site fully online.

However I kept getting the 403 despite entering the correct password, so I reopened the .htaccess and started getting exactly the same results as jarop: The CMS load page just sits there forever.

I have noticed the browser status line reporting loding 48 of 49 objetcs, then nothing.

Removing session cookies makes no difference, but adding the line:


works fine. As soon as it's commented out, the symptoms reappear. Putting it back in lets me log in again.

I get the same symptoms on Safari 4 beta and Firefox 3.0.10 (OS X)

Hm, sounds a lot like:

You guys should install Firebug ( and then have a look if there are some files that aren't loading properly. Maybe it's a permission problem

Hi banal,

Thanks for the pointers.

How I missed that post you highlighted, I don't know. But miss it, I did. Must have been the tired, red, eyes from staring at the screen. :-)

OK, so, I've run Firebug against the problem site and get the following:

The Net tab shows a successful GET admin, followed by three "500 Internal server errors" for GETs against each of the files;

There are also nine console errors:
two: "Class ss.i18n not defined" in line 2 of en_US.js
one: "Class not found" in line 1 of tiny_mce_improvements.js
six: "Behaviour is not defined" errors against the admin URL on various lines

How I would guess that most, or all, of the console errors are likely as a result of one or more of the failed GETs?

Any more pointers would be appreciated.

In the meantime, I'm going to look into file permissions.

More info.

While trying to edit the site with "Director::set_environment_type("dev");" set, clicking on the "Files & Images" tab reliably gives the following error:

"[Notice] Undefined index: Folder_UnusedAssetsField
GET /admin/assets/

Line 157 in ... <path cut by Lokash20> ... /sapphire/core/ClassInfo.php"

I really wonder where this admin/assets is coming from. AFAIK there is no such folder (unless it was introduced in 2.3.2).
What are the URLs that are causing the server error (500) ? Do these files exist?

If not, it might be an .htaccess error?

Having done a little digging, I'm now assuming that 'admin/assests' is probably error in the error message! 8-|

The physical locations for the files are as follows:
base.js - <cms ROOT>/assets/base.jms
leftandmain.js - <cms ROOT>/assets/leftandmain.js
cmsmain.js - <cms ROOT>/assets/cmsmain.js

and they all seem to have been correctly referenced in amongst the details shown in Firebug.

What's more, they all appear to have the same access permissions as my dev site which is working fine. :-(
