Hi!

Im a windows 7 user and I try to install Oxwall on localhost, using xampp, and I can't pass the step.

I tried to run on cmd, cd E:/xampp/htdocs/ow_cron ( this is the path in my pc ), and then run pwd command, but I get this error: pwd' is not recognized as an internal or external command.


so, my xampp path is E:\xampp

path for php,in xampp, is E:\xampp\php

How can I pass the crong config. step?

what should I write in run.php?this doesnt work.

E:/xampp/php E:/xampp/htdocs/ow_cron/run.php

Hi,

This is my setup with Windows XP

I have created a batch file in the root of my C: drive --> cron.bat

That file contain the following lines:

C:\xampp\php\php.exe C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php
C:\xampp\php\php.exe C:\xampp\htdocs\oxwall-1.4.1\ow_cron\run.php
C:\xampp\php\php.exe C:\xampp\htdocs\my_site.com\ow_cron

Change "my_site.com" for your test site name...

And the I have created a schedule task who is activating the batch file once a hour... An interval of 1 minute between cron triggering is recommend for online site but to develop locally, once a hour is find for me...

Hope this help!
