I am trying to install Silverstripe on a freshly setup VPS with Apache/2.4.7, Ubuntu 14.04, PHP 5.5.9. Every time I try the install, it happily goes through with no errors and I end up on the "Installation Successful" page, but the email and password section has no values (I presume it should show at least the email there?) When I click on the link to edit my content by opening the CMS, it takes me to a login screen where my login details are rejected every time I type them in. The fields go red, presumably to indicate the credentials are incorrect, but no message displays.
The database displays my email in the Members table. I have tried installing with a username instead of an email but the results are still the same.
I have tried installing many times, and also tried installing both 3.1 and 3.2. I have tried adding Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin','password'); to my _config.php, and this adds a user to the database, but those credentials don't work either.
I feel like it isn't a problem with silverstripe, but perhaps some setting on my VPS - though I don't know where to start looking. Hope it is something really simple!
Can anyone point me in the right direction? :0)
