I have collected the best and most modern of OxWall (version 1.87 for PHP> 7.x)

I have added the files for installation

I have updated all the libraries

I have corrected the English language and removed all unused entries.

I have checked the installation and operation several times and it works perfectly.

Watch out! It is for new installations, it is NOT an upgrade.

You can download it for free from this store:


But you have to register first, it is completely free.

There are people with very bad intentions, I do not know how they have done but they have thrown owspain.com to the ground for a few hours, while I was working.

I guess they are the same ones that put SPAM here.

I will never understand these objectives ... If you are not interested in OxWall, then you go elsewhere and forget us.

Better to throw FaceBook + Instagram + WhatsApp to the ground.

The web is already online, I'm sorry for the delay.

I have published a new version with a bug detected and the plugins improved.


Thanks to those who are collaborating, we will continue to move forward.

OxWall will never die!

Did I say it's free?

SQL Error on fresh install during Web Install. 

After further investigations, I've tracked it down to an error in install.sql:

mysql [database_name] < install.sql

ERROR 1071 (42000) at line 9235: Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes

I'll look more into it tomorrow.

I noticed it actually does finish the install, but this SQL error prevents certain tables from being loaded into the DB, because of it failing on this table.

I get it failing on ow_base_plugins when trying to load after this, which is a table that is shortly after line 9235. The SQL portion of the install is crashing on ow_base_menu_item preventing anything past that from loading:


CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `ow_base_menu_item`

the "key" is:

  `key` varchar(150) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',

  `documentKey` varchar(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',

  UNIQUE KEY `key` (`key`,`prefix`),

  KEY `documentKey` (`documentKey`)

It's defined at only 100/150 bytes, so I'm not sure why it's saying there is a limit of 1000 bytes?

I was able to get it working by replacing the install.sql file with the original and running the web install from the beginning.


Quick Command for WHM/Cpanel:

cd /home/[user]/public_html/[oxwall_path]/install/files/; mv install.sql install.sql.new; wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/...er/files/install.sql

Access site and Install like normal from scratch. You'll have to drop all previous tables in the DB from any previous install attempt.
