hi everyone

i just installed silverstripe cms on my xp machine with no problems.

once i try to access the admin page ex.: http://localhost/mywebsite/Admin, IE informs me that the page could not be found or was removed.

can anyone help me out? do i have to config the _config.php?

NB. the only log in page that i can access is :http://localhost/mywebsite/index.php/Security/login - where i have to input an e-mail address and password.

Are you running this on Apache/WAMP or IIS. Whichever, it sounds like URL rewriting may not be working.

Edit: Sorry, I mean XAMMP not WAMP :)

If you are using Apache, you may not have mod_rewrite installed. As for IIS, I cannot remember the best way to use this, but there are some docs here:

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the help Mo.

I decided to run SS on Apache/Xampp and thats solved the problem.

you were probably right, it seems that on the IIS there was a problem on the rewriting.

I will try and find out the correct configuration for the IIS.
