I have read through most of the forum posts and it seems there are some consistent issues with lack of documentation on this software install - especially with which files need to be writable, some simple steps to double check installed files, etc.... That being said - I "think" I have successfully installed the software and logged into admin. However I am having issues with the following:

1. I am trying to modify the header image on the site to put my own logo on it - but it does not recognize the jpg I select and won't upload it.
2. Avatars don't load even though the dir is set for 777 writable
3. to create a cron job in interworx you can set the time but there is no place to identify the run.php location - only a box for a script - do I copy the run script and drop it in there?

Any help would be greatly appreciated  - thanks

Hello Art. 

Typically, when install oxwall at first time, all necessary folders already has writable permissions. By in some cases, this permissions are reset. In a few days, there will be published exact list of folders which should be writable after installation. 
For now, try to set 777 recursive permissions for these folders:
- ow_pluginsfiles/
- ow_userfiles/
- ow_static/

Didn't get your point about cronjob. Would you provide a screenshot?
