Error/Bugs in the Last Step of Installation | Forum

Shayan Aug 26 '10

I am using the new beta2 version that was released yesterday

I am getting same error that i get before

When i try to install oxwall its goes well till database, it successfully dump database and ask me to choose plugins to install

now when I choose plugins to install and click on finish it runs the whole installation process again

and if i dont choose any plugin and click finish it tries to redirect me to the main page, BUt on main page it shows the following error in firefox

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I dont have any problem with cookies, dunno why its giving this error
please check it again

I am installing it on my windows XP platform using XAMPP server, in a subfolder like http://localhost/oxwall

Mod_Rewrite is enable all requirements are fullfill

please check it

I had the same problem with a MAMP install using a localhost and port 8888.

define('OW_URL_HOME', 'http://localhost:8888/oxwall/');

I found the error was caused by the public function init():

public function init()
// Comment out this urlHostRedirect() and the site will open without the error
// $this->urlHostRedirect();


// setting default time zone
date_default_timezone_set(OW::getConfig()->getValue('base', 'site_timezone'));

@Lloyd Merithew
Thank for report :) We have fixed this issue, please, try to update to Beta5.

I upgraded to Beta5 by doing a clean new install. Same issue exists.
Mac OSX Server 10.6.4 with MAMP v1.9.2.

Another observation: I tried a new install on Centos 5 with std Apache using SSL and got the same error message but it also redirected by repeating the url twice.

I am facing the same issue with Oxwall 1.5.1 and 1.5.2
I am getting the same error in the last step of installation.
I am hosting a webserver on my system with the domain name http://www.humane.iitkgp.ernet.in.

Please help asap.
