I have installed a clean Ver of SS using the default theme B-candy.
The whole installation process is fine. i can navigate About us, Contact US and Home.
The problem is when i type /admin i get PAGE NOT FOUND.

dev/build is working
Security/Login is working
i even tried Security/login?BackURL=?/admin/ i will login and it returns a PAGE NOT FOUND again.

Huh... that's a weird one.

Where are you installing SilverStripe?

Maybe mod_rewrite isn't working. Try after logging in.

What was the issue exactly and how did you solved it ? Because I am having the same problem except that trying only cause firefox to tell me that I have redirection issues.

Edit: Additionally, a colleague created a panel called secure in which we can access the CMS but log to a custom panel of the CMS and only this panel seems to be working, can you advise please ?

Edity #2: I have found my mistake :

it was my own mistake, my misunderstanding of the new userform and carelessness.
I had put an email sender, without the email recipient. That was causing the server internal error.
However, I think that it could be great if the form should checked if there is an email recipient and send an error message and not simply die if it doesn't...
