I discovered silverstripe last night and was blown away by the features. The admin CP really left me speechless. I was immedeately convinced to try this on my website. First i did a test install on my lighttpd server and it worked fine. I added what i needed to add to my lighttpd.conf, installed mysql and it worked. So now im trying to get it installed in my web document root. I deleted the preexisting table from mysql, changed the document root in lighttpd.conf, and tried installing it again. It seemed to have worked excactly the same way, but when you go to the site, it looks all messed up. Someone on the irc found that something was redirecting /themes/blackcandy/css/typography.css was being redirected to You can take a look here and here .

All help appreciated
