I'm just working with SS at the moment and struggling along.

All I want to do is store an image in a Database, But I'm getting the error :

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare CourseProfilePage::$has_one in C:\xampp\htdocs\silverstripe\mysite\code\CourseProfilePage.php on line 65

I'm pretty much copying this word for word from the tutorial, Just tweaked it ever so slightly.

Any ideas on what would cause this?

My code is as follows :

static $db = array(
'CourseName' => 'VarChar(100)',
'CourseDescription' => 'HTMLText',
'CourseAddress' => 'Text',
'Phone' => 'Text',
'Fax' => 'Text',
'Email' => 'Text',
'Website' => 'Text',
'RoadDirections' => 'HTMLText',
'RailDirections' => 'HTMLText',
'AdmissionPrice' => 'HTMLText',
'WeatherLocation' => 'Text'
static $has_one = array(
'CoursePicture' => 'Image'

But it doesnt like the $has_one array. What would cause this?

Thanks in advance

atal error: Cannot redeclare CourseProfilePage::$has_one in ...

Would normally happen if you have 2 static $has_one arrays in the same page class. Remove the other one and you should be sorted.
