Installation Error | Forum

John Dec 30 '17
Hi, I have trouble installing oxwal on a debian 8 server with virtualmin. I first got a 500 error which i fixed in the .httaccess and now i can succesfully load the install page. However it tells me that i am missing php extensions.

Your hosting account doesn't meet the following requirements:

  • zip PHP extension not installed
  • gd PHP extension not installed
  • mysql PHP extension not installed

However the extensions are installed

root@vps164250:~# php5 -m | grep -i zip


root@vps164250:~# php5 -m | grep -i gd


root@vps164250:~# php5 -m | grep -i mysql




Restarted apache and still landing on this page. Any idea on how to fix this issue ??

Nevermind my post. I found a work around for the issue. and everything is up and running now. If somebody else have the same problem here is how i fixed it.

1. Make sure all the extensions are properly installed and properly linked in your php.ini

2. Log on your server and go to /home/yourwebsite/public_html/ow_install/files

3. with your favorite txt editor open requirements.txt

4 from the line #PHP extensions php.extensions PDO, mbstring, zip, zlib, ftp, json, dom, gd, mysql; Just erase the extensions that are displaying in error

You will then be able to move forward. 

N.B. if step 1 isn't done properly, don't expect the install to work
