I've managed to install 2.4.5 (successfully) into a web directory

but I want to move the SilverStripe files to a shared application directory.

After I've moved and linked the directories like so

/var/www/chd$ ls -l
total 24
drwxrwsr-x 3 www-data adm 4096 2011-06-23 15:55 assets
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     adm   40 2011-06-23 16:10 cms -> /usr/local/apps/SilverStripe-v2.4.5/cms/
-rwxrwxr-x 1 www-data adm  318 2007-09-24 11:34 favicon.ico
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     adm   51 2011-06-23 16:08 googlesitemaps -> /usr/local/apps/SilverStripe-v2.4.5/googlesitemaps/
-rwxrwxr-x 1 www-data adm 2330 2010-02-03 15:57 index.php
drwxrwsr-x 4 www-data adm 4096 2011-02-02 11:57 mysite
-rwxrwxr-x 1 www-data adm 1431 2010-10-02 18:31 phpunit.xml.dist
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     adm   45 2011-06-23 16:09 sapphire -> /usr/local/apps/SilverStripe-v2.4.5/sapphire/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 www-data    adm   43 2011-06-23 16:06 themes -> /usr/local/apps/SilverStripe-v2.4.5/themes/
-rwxrwxr-x 1 www-data adm  112 2010-03-06 10:26 web.config

I get

Warning: $project isn't set in /usr/local/apps/SilverStripe-v2.4.5/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 269

Shouldn't this be read from the _config.php in the /var/www/chd/mysite directory as before I moved the sapphire dir?

It's likely that by moving the folder SS perhaps sets the base include path for the manifest to your usr/local folder. You may want to debug through the core.php / look at the manifest file and determine what that include paths look like. That is the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.
