How can I fix this error message?

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

* Setting up 'mysite/_config.php'...
* Setting up /var/www/web2/html/nwcwe/mysite/_config.php
* Setting up '.htaccess' file...
* Setting up /var/www/web2/html/nwcwe/.htaccess
* Building database schema...

Please ensure a "sapphire/thirdparty" folder exists within your SilverStripe installation.

Within sapphire/thirdparty should be a "Zend" folder, and within that a Log.php file.
Sometimes these may not have transferred correctly when uploading files to server via FTP.

Good luck!

You also have to make sure sapphire/thirdparty is on your include path. You can do this manually in your php.ini (include_path) or if you cannot override that file you can put this at the top of your _config file

set_include_path(get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . dirname(dirname(__FILE__). "/sapphire/thirdparty");

There's already code doing this in sapphire/core/Core.php. Specifically, it is this (around line 203):

set_include_path(str_replace('.' . PATH_SEPARATOR, '.' . PATH_SEPARATOR 
	. BASE_PATH . '/sapphire' . PATH_SEPARATOR
	. BASE_PATH . '/sapphire/parsers' . PATH_SEPARATOR
	. BASE_PATH . '/sapphire/thirdparty' . PATH_SEPARATOR
	, get_include_path()));

This adds sapphire, sapphire/parsers and sapphire/thirdparty absolute paths to the include path.

I'm not sure why it's not working for some people. Perhaps the web host has locked the ability to set the include path?

I think the same thing: the host of my client sucks... I'm going to try changing the host service and then I'll tell you if it works.
