First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I chose to put it here because it seems tied to a new install.

I have been a "Joomla Junkie" for some time and was looking for something new to meet my needs and am really excited about getting SilverStripe up and working. From what I have seen in the demo, it looks fantastic. I am doing an install on Linux. The install seemed to go ok although it did mention problems with the webserver and mod_rewrite. Once completed, I hit the home page and it came up as I expected (great excitement here). Upon clicking any links, the page shows, but seems to be missing any CSS formatting (great dejection).

My logs are not showing any specific errors. Has anyone seen this behavior before? You can check it out for yourself at Im testing on Mozilla 3.6. The server is:

Linux 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 15 20:57:57 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The webserver is Litespeed (apache2.0 for all practical purposes).

Welcome :)
I think there is some problem with rewriting at your side (some server configuration?). Home page works, because the url is root domain ( For any subpage the links get wasted because the base url is set to

For example on home page you have this, which is fine:

link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" /> 

but on about-us page you have:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" /> 

The index.php shouldn't be there. Can you check your Apache configuration and .htaccess file?
