TurnKeyLinux LAMP | Forum

I would like to migrate Oxwall to a VPS. I am testing on a TurnKeyLinux (Debian) LAMP VM on VirtualBox first before deploying in the cloud (my vps provider provides TKL LAMP as an OS template).  For anyone trying to deploy on TKL LAMP, I ran into the 500 error that has been discussed on this forum when trying to access the install page.  Once that was resolved, I was able to access the setup page, but then TKL LAMP was missing GD2.  So I did an apt-get to install libgd2-xpm.  Then I also had to enable the rewrite module in Apache.  From that point on the setup worked, but I noticed that it was text only, ie. the familiar UI and images were not visible.



I'm having trouble resolving the issue, even though I've followed suggestions on this forum that seem to have helped others (e.g. chmod 777 on relevant directories, .htaccess, etc.).

Has anyone tried to deploy OW on TKL LAMP?  Any ideas what I need to do to get the UI/images to show up?

ow_userfiles
ow_static
ow_pluginfiles

I also checked each of the directories and files listed in the following post, and they are all correct...

why do you go for localhost/index.php/install it should be just localhost/install?

I get a 404 File Not Found when connecting to localhost/install.

If I hit localhost/index.php it redirects to localhost/index.php/install.

I simply unpacked OW in /var/www directory.

Here is screen shot of /var/www directory.

what do you have in the URL after you try to connect to localhost/install?

It doesn't change.  Just localhost/install.

I get the following error...

Not Found

The requested URL /install was not found on this server.

Apache/2.2.22 (Debian) Server at localhost Port 80

But if I hit localhost/index.php it redirects to localhost/index.php/install/site
