Hi all,

How to skip Oxwall installation pages?

We need to transport our oxwall instances to new server.

Each time we move an instance, the installation page always popping up.

We have correctly set the db connection etc on config.php.

Is there any configuration we should changes?

Please help, it was such a pain to reinstall and migrate the db.

Have you changed the site url in the ow_includes/config.php file?

hello ross.. thx for your reply.

We have changed the config file according to new server configuration, 

but installation page still popping up.

Let me check your article, maybe I miss some step.

Is there any configuration related to the machine? For example mac address which is make oxwall installation stick to one machine? I'm currently use Oxwall 1.5.3

No need to assign specific mac address
