Oxwall and sub domain problem | Forum

Frank Feb 6 '12
I installed Oxwall software and it installed fine. However, I want my social network to have a classifieds section and I could not find a classifieds plugin.
I then created a sub domain and tried to install Osclass, a classifieds ads script and it failed to install.
My hosts said the Oxwall .htaccess is the one that is causing this.
I saw on one forum that you can place a second .htaccess in the sub folder so that it overrides the Oxwall .htaccess.

What contents should go into the second .htaccess as I am not well versed with this file so that it overrides the Oxwall .htaccess. Apparently, Osclass does not have an .htaccess file. Thank you

if you had searched first there is many solutions posted on the forums already, some work on some host others dont, the one that worked for me is by addingthis line to my .htaccess

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !sub.mydomain.com$

I have tried everything and I can not run other applications
Quote from Mark RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !sub.mydomain.com$
Does not work!

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/otherscript/

Can't get this to work

I consider that Oxwall it self needs to make their htaccess file and script more friendly for subdomain's and other scripts. seemingly they are lousy programmers when it comes to servers?

I installed using softucalous and now have no access to any other software other than oxwall. Well what can one expect for an organization promoting free license and then selling services. Its going to be full of bugs and very awkward to install and stop you installing other products. i am bemused that a company such as softulasous entertains a software installation that locks out its other clients installs. Oh never mind its free and one has tear ones hair out keeping it that way. Turned me off of donating however

um anon that seems to be a bug in your servers software as I am using arvixe hosting and have used softucalous to install and then install other things as well as used them in sub domains however from personal experience a regular install of oxwall is so simple I always suggest installing from a updated oxwall download directly from oxwall.org if you would like I can take a look at your service provider and see how dependable their servers are and how compatible they are with oxwall

No Joseph no bug and I very capable to sort the problem out myself. Arvixe is a recommended server for oxwall and of course there is no problems, lol

The sever I use is very compatible it is a problem on many other servers as well. my message was for Oxwall. You not if you do a search how many people are having the same problem. Configuration should not be a problem in the htaccess file if the same proceedure works in yours it should work in all others. If the directories and scripting is the same. Then there are no other problems with the setup same directories and same scripting in the files on the server.

Yes problems can happen if modules are not set properly or are not on a server. But in this case they are.

It could only be a case of the wrong RewriteCond  or not being correctly configured.

Such as
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !http://great.com/wordpress/$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !http://wordpress.great.com.com$

or RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/wordpress.great.com/ 0r RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/wordpress/ or RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !http://great.com/otherscript/

I have not really played yet, lol

What I am saying this problem and it is a problem really should not be one as the htaccess should already allow for other domains and other directories can be accessed to run other applications.

Perhaps your htaccess file does on the arvixe server as its a recommended server for Oxwall. lol

Of course you let us all know whats in the Htaccess file on arvixe as it could be the magic formula. i am sure others with such a problem as I have seen will appreciate it.
