After installing SS under MAMP and playing a bit around I wanted to install it to my webspace (provider:

Installation worked fine but I can't access the admin-page. I always get stuck at the "Loading..." text (happens in IE,Firefox, Safari)
Firebug shows one javascript-error "hideLoading is not defined".

The three test-pages (home, about, contact) seem to work fine.

I tried version 2.2.3 and 2.3rc, both show the same problem.

My .htaccess-file looks like this:

AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectorySlash Off

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$ 

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

Any ideas?

hi Torran,

[ please do not make fun of my spelling had a long hard day and it's beginning to get harder *sigh* ]

Try to look where your JavaScript folder is stationed... i had the same problem. my folder suddenly appeared in '.root./cms/lang' but it was suppose to be in '.root./cms'. That's why it could not find it and wasn't defined.

a quick tip : back-up next time :P 'i now do it every time i change something'
That way you can find sooner if something is in the wrong place.
