I am trying to install Silverstripe on a 1 and 1 server. I have set up a MSql database with php 5.0 for this particular site. When I run the install.php I get:

To run SilverStripe, please install PHP 5.0 or greater.

We have detected that you are running PHP version 4.4.9. In order to run SilverStripe, you must have PHP version 5.0 or greater, and for best results we recommend PHP 5.2 or greater.

If you are running on a shared host, you may need to ask your hosting provider how to do this.

I haven't even been able to setup which database it goes to with username and password which would direct it to the MySql that is php version 5.0.

Any suggestions.

Hi Fleisch,

Open the .htaccess file and add:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

Once the installation is complete you have to add both lines to the .htaccess file once again because SilverStripe has the habit to edit this file during the setup.

I have changed my .htaccess file to:

<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif$)|(\.jpg$)|(\.png$)|(\.css$)|(\.js$)

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

php_value memory_limit 64M

When it starts the install i get the following:

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

* Creating 'mysite/_config.php'...
* Creating /homepages/11/d248881978/htdocs/komoninn/mysite/_config.php
* Creating '.htaccess' file...
* Creating /homepages/11/d248881978/htdocs/komoninn/.htaccess
* Building database schema...
* Checking that friendly URLs work...
* Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because mod_rewrite isn't configuredcorrectly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:
o mod_rewrite is enabled
o AllowOverride All is set for your directory

Any ideas where or what I should try from here. Thanks for the help!
