This is probably a weird question but is there any way to install this software locally on a LAN or WLAN for example?

I use it currently as a vehicle for teaching Internet safety but my hosting provider is limiting me to 20 concurrent users max. I need a minimum of 30.

I can't use the hosting companies suggested by Oxwall because UK schools can only use UK-based servers.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, install WAMP on a server on your local school network and then set Oxwall up on there :)

Thanks Sean...I thought that would probably be the answer. The problem is I'm peripatetic so I guess if I do that I'd need to set up a WLAN and carry the server round with me.

I may end up shelling out for VPS at this rate. Sigh.

Gwenllian South, if I understand you correctly, to install the Oxwall software locally you may use the WAMP portable.
Check the search results how to make WAMP portable in google:

In this case you will need to edit every time the ow_core/config.php file and change value of OW_URL_HOME to IP address of computer where you run the server.

That's an interesting suggestion - I'll give that a try. Thanks Taissa.
