John, is this the file you get to replace the original one? 

I mean this part in particular: 

define('OW_DB_HOST', 'localhost');
define('OW_DB_PORT', null);
define('OW_DB_USER', 'root');
define('OW_DB_PASSWORD', '{$db_password}');
define('OW_DB_NAME', 'oxwall');

Please do not use installotron, can you please try to install the software manually? : https://docs.oxwall.org/install:manual_installation And see if the issue persists.

OK ross after a considerable struggle trying to install I now get this message - I have no idea , how to do this, need help please.

ow_includes/config.php file is incorrect. Update it with details provided below.

• Create a cron job that runs ow_cron/run.php once a minute. (?)

John, try to set 777 permission on the ow_includes/config.php file before installation and try to install again. 

If it does not work, please PM me access details to the server, I'll try to install the software for you and PM you back you admin login details.

I'm having the same issue, manual install. A summary of measures that failed so far:

chmod 744 or 755 to ow_includes/config.php. I get the "file is incorrect" error on clicking next. New salt is generated each time.

chmod 777 to ow_includes/config.php. The textarea where the php config should be disappears. As in john wilkins' #6.

Make absolutely sure that there are no trailing spaces or new lines. And then making sure that there are.

Adding ?> to ow_includes/config.php.

Ross , it has been a long time since this post started. Recently a friend helped do an installation
He wrote the following script but knows nothing about Oxwall.
I need something similar to run cron job in Oxwall
#!/bin/bash
