Hi everybody,

Just recently I discovered Silverstripe and I like it very much, it is so simple to configure / design a template! Now I am trying to install a new Silverstripe installation on a new host (from a client), but I get an error...I think it is a problem with the server configuration but I don't know how to fix it. On my own server it works perfectly. Anyway, it says:

Fatal error: Class 'Debug' not found in /var/www/clients/client10/web110/web/sapphire/core/Core.php on line 264

I have tried 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 and both versions give this same error. It occurs directly after I upload all the Silverstripe installation files in to the root folder of the website. I have also tried to chmod every file of the installation, but this doesn't do anything.

Can anyone help me fixing this problem? I don't know what to do anymore...

It sounds like there is a missing file... are you sure the files were uploaded correctly?

You may also want to create a silverstripe-cache folder in the project and give it web user write access. Then you can easily delete the temp cache files in there if there's a problem.

Thanks for your reply! Although I double checked it, something was wrong with the file permissions. Now It just works fine :)
