Installing SilverStripe


SilverStripe is a web application. This means that you will need to have a webserver and database meeting its requirements. We will take you through the setup of the server environment as well the application itself.

You can download SilverStripe as an archive or from version control.

If you already have an installed version of SilverStripe, please see our upgrading guide.



We recommend that you use the free Microsoft Web Platform installer.
The more technically inclined can install using IIS or install using Apache/WAMP.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X comes with a built-in webserver, but you can also use MAMP install using MAMP or using MacPorts.


If you run into trouble, see common-problems or post to the SilverStripe forums.
