Silverstripe installation error



[quote]Installing SilverStripe…

I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation

Creating ‘mysite/_config.php’…

Creating ‘.htaccess’ file…

Building database schema…

Warning: fopen(/tmp/silverstripe-cache/manifest_home_.something_username_domain.com_sub_dir_sapphire_main.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/.something/username/ on line 116
Cannot write manifest file! Check permissions of /tmp/silverstripe-cache/manifest_home_.something_username_domain.com_sub_dir_sapphire_main.php[/quote]
Why am I getting this error? Apparently, most people have this working on like… the first try.


Never mind. I asked in the silverstripe forum and got an answer.

you have to install the latest version (version 2.1 rc1 at the moment) and create silverstripe-cache on that directory (the one with folders cms, sapphire, etc


I also had problems that were resolved by two steps…
create a folder called silverstripe-cache with write permissions and choosing thee blank install (not preloaded with demo info)

hope that helps others.
