I ran install on RackSpace Cloud Site after extracting the SilverStripe onto they web root.

The Installation does not finish and it throws an error below;

[04-Oct-2009 02:39:44] PHP Fatal error: require_once() [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: Failed opening required 'core/Core.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /mnt/stor2-wc2-dfw1/434871/ on line 61

Can anyone help?

Thank you in advance.

Failing opening the file would suggest to me that the files aren't readable by php?. Make sure the files are owned by apache and that the file owner (apache) can read them.

Thank you Willr,

I found out the problem with this.

When I transfer the files to RackSpace the file names are being converted to ALL lowercase. And the script is looking for files with mixed cases.
