SS-2.4.6 : CMS times out when changing pages

I've successfully set up SS on several servers before. This time my new SS install doesn't work and I've not been able to fix it.

The Problem:

  • SilverStripe 2.4.6 installed correctly on the server (AFAIK).
  • The front-end works as expected. (Show default theme. Pages all load correctly.)
  • I am able to log into the CMS admin section succesfully. The CMS loads but when changing site pages in the CMS using the browser pane on the left, the CMS shows the circular loading symbol. The new page load never completes.
  • Using the console of Firebug in Firefox - When attempting to change pages in the CMS (by clicking on the page browser pane) the CMS tries to load two pages. The second page request 404s.

The first GET request is from the initial page loads.
The following POST+GET requests fire when clicking on the page tree to change pages.

I've tried deleting and re-installing silverstripe twice. (2.4.7 and 2.4.6) Both times the problem recurs.

A strange thing is that this server is already running two other silverstripe sites (both of which I installed without a hitch). All three websites are accessed via different domains. I tried accessing this install via another domain thinking there might be something wrong with how this third domain is configured but that didn't help either.

What should I try now? I'm stumped.

Thanks for any help in advance.

I've posted this question on StackOverflow as well.
