Hi everyone,

I've recently upgraded my laptop to windows 7, after setting up xampp I've tried to start a new SS project but I'm hitting a wall here.

After Silverstripe has checked the system requirements, I am getting this:


Installing SilverStripe...

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

* Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
* Creating G:\Program files\xampp\htdocs\wwwroot\ARH DB\mysite/_config.php
* Creating '.htaccess' file...
* Creating G:\Program files\xampp\htdocs\wwwroot\ARH DB\.htaccess
* Building database schema...
* Checking that friendly URLs work...
* Testing...


There it is just hanging. In the browser the title is reading 'PHP 5 is required'.

Anyone got any ideas? My PHP, Apache and MySql is all singing and dancing, I can't understand why SS won't install any further. Permissions all seem to look ok.

I had mistakenly had a space in the folder name of my site which I have now removed and everything works fine now.
