Hi Dave,

i have tried it on 2 Servers. Both are hosted but bevor i have tried to install oxwall for the first time, i have asked both hosters for the server requirements from here:


Both say that my server supports the requirements..

My last try was on the server from www.all-inkl.com, there i have thit package:

Hi sven ok what you need to do is download the zip package and upload the whole zip file to your html directory you need to make a database with all your rights opened
then unzip the oxwall package rename it to wot ever then you need to put in your status bar

www.yoursite.name/oxwall directory/install.php

hope this helps

Hallo Sven

Ich habe oxwall heute bei bplaced.net installiert. Der Webspace ist gratis und die Installation geht wunderbar. Das einzig was du tun musst, ist in .htaccess datei die Zeile Option FollowSymLink entfernen oder sei auskommentieren.
Anschliessend eine Datenbank erstellen und die entsprechenden Angaben in der Installation einfügen.

Please, check that you have PHP 5.2.9 or higher. Also check your session's settings in php.ini. Is it works?

it was my mistake. My server supports PHP 5.2.9 it, however, PHP 5.2.9 was noch activated. Now I have given the order to my provider to move my server on the new PHP version, then I try it again.

Thank you for the help

@heinz: bplaced.net Account ordered, i will test it (Text in English for all the other users here). Thanks for the tipp

Seems some folder do not have 777 permissions.
Would you set recursive 777 permissions for ow_pluginsfiles and ow_userfiles folders and reinstall software again?
