Hi, what is my problem? I prepare my site on localhost. Now, i migrate it to live hosting. But i was not able to open the administration.
When I have site in live or test mode, i stuck on wellcome silverstripe-logo. If I put site to dev mode, i normally login and do what I need.

SS 2.4.7
DOM, Uploadify, KickAssets, userforms, legacydatetimefields, uploadify

I migrate the database, but i can't find some mistake here. Could be because PHP or something? When i try new instalation, it works fine.

So you're able to enter your username and password but it hangs with the SS logo page after submitting?
Do you have firebug installed? Can you check your console, there may be js errors in there causing it to fail.

The same happened to me with SilverStripe 3.0.2. PHP was exhausting all the available memory and crashing somewhere in Object.php for no apparent reasons.

It took me a while to resolve this issue: "chmod 0777 assets" did the trick. After that, _combinedfiles/{cmsmain,leftandmain,lib}.js have been generated and the problem vanished.

I think that launching the CMS not in dev mode with a non-writable assets directory triggers a mutual recursion.
