Having difficulty uploading Oxwall to HostGator | Forum

Jazzy Feb 25 '13
Initially I was able to upload an older version from HostGator and try to upgrade but had problems. Then I deleted the directory and attempted to install it manuel from your website, but i failed. 

1. Could it be that Oxwall requires the upload to be on the main page (index domain)? First time I uploaded Oxwall, I was able to make it a directory/sub folder, called network. I am trying to understand why I'm having such difficulty uploading it manually. 

2. I deleted only the directory file (only 1 file). When uploading manually (starting over) I asked myself... could the reason why im having so much problem is because there might have been another file that i did not delete and is contradicting with the new upload? 

Can anybody help? Right now, I'm in the process of recovering the file... I believe its 1.4. If I am able to recovery, can I get a critical step-by-step on how to update the old software?

Just to clarify - are you requesting a file from Oxwall 1.4? Or do you need assistance with the update? What do you mean by upload? You cannot upload an archive?

Please find Oxwall 1.4.1 attached.

Michael, thanks for getting back to me. I originally had the 1.4 v uploaded onto my site as a subdirectory called /network. The problem was, I could not update it to the latest version. So instead of requesting help, I decided to delete the /network folder (v 1.4) and came here to get the latest version and manually try to upload it myself by using the directions provided by your company. I still could not get it to work. So now I'm at a dead end and cannot get the original 1.4.1 or the latest version uploaded to my host account. 

The whole reason why I wanted to update from 1.4 to the latest was because I could not get Facebook integration sign up to work, and thought it had to do with the old version I had.
