I have deleted those log in details thank you. I was confused about downloading wamp to my pc, since my web hosting provided a way to install silverstripe on the website direct.

First thing: Please remove the installation details from your post!!!

SilverStripe is all set up for you. The DBs have been configured already and you are set to go.

Here is how you log in:

1. Go to:
2. Enter your email and password

Play around at editing pages and creating new ones.

Here is a link to the tutorials to get further:

Good luck!

Hi thanks for all your help on installing silverstripe on my webserver. I resolved some of my problems by logging out of skype and then miraculously everything worked. The problem was port 80 being also used by skype.
