I hope I post this in the right forum. I´m a total newbee to this CMS thing and I thought that SS seems to be the best one.

I builded a SS-site using a WAMP-server and did it on my local machine. I went out to be a pretty good site and I´m happy with it.

Then I tried to build a site on my webhosts server and it looks like that is a IIS 6.0 sever, and then all the problem started. I´ve managed to install SS and the site is up and running, but I can´t login to the CMS admin page. It´s just says "loading..." and when I scrol down to the bottom of the page, there is just a few links, to logout and silverstripe and my profile. I attach a picture to show how it looks.

To get the site work att all i placed a "httpd.ini" file in the root of the website. In that file I´ve put the following record:

[ISAPI_Rewrite] RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond URL (?!.*gif|.*jpg|.*png|.*swf|.*xml|.*css|.*flv|.*js|.*php).*
RewriteCond URL (?!.*\?).*
RewriteRule (.*) /sapphire/main.php\?url=$1

RewriteCond URL (?!.*gif|.*jpg|.*png|.*swf|.*xml|.*css|.*flv|.*js|.*php).*
RewriteCond URL .*\?.*
RewriteRule (.*)\?(.*) /sapphire/main.php\?url=$1&$2

I am pretty certain that it has something to do with the rewriterule, but I have no clue what to do now... Please help me, before I pull off all my hair. Not that I have a lot of hair left to pull off, but I want to keep the little I have left ;-)
