I got round this by deleting the installation and then re-installing using the black candy theme instead of the tutorial.

Can you please expound a little on your comment.

I upload all my files to the server.
Type in the domain name to begin installation.
The system defaults to the blackcandy theme.
Enter my details.
Click the button to install.

Do I install the system first using the tutorial?
Then if/when it fails, install the blackcandy? what should I do? Please explain more the steps you took to do this.

Thank you,

I should add that I have never installed with the tutorial before

I just uploaded all the files to a new domain.
Typed in the domain name and this is the result...

Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(../../../_ss_environment.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/homemain:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/homemain/public_html/sapphire/core/Core.php on line 31

Can someone who knows what this means please help?
Thank you,

This was a long time ago. Seems most of these type problems come from something on the server not being compatible. You may need to check with your host and something with the php.ini file - check other posts for this.

This is happening due to the value of the open_basedir being set in the php configuration.
This may be solved by editing the php.ini file, by changing the value of open_basedir or commenting it out.
