Hello All, I'm a Silverstripe newbie here :) did the install, everything checked out, default site up and running *but* http://localhost/admin comes back 404! What did I miss?

os: linux (ubuntu 10.04)
web server: Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu)
silverstripe: 2.4.3
mysql: 5.1

Also, when clicking about the default site after install my urls are coming up

greg@greg-laptop:~$ sudo a2enmod rewrite
Module rewrite already enabled

arg ...

I think you are missing the setting of AllowOverride All.

Depending on how you've got Apache setup, the default would be to change it from "None" to "All" in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default (look at the <Directory /var/www/> directive settings).

That might be different if you've setup a virtual host, or are using a different DocumentRoot.

Hope that helps you.
