Oxwall and softaculous bug

Oxwall Bug in Softaculous

September 14, 2013 in News by Geeks Hosted  |  2 Comments

Hi all. I thought this was important in case any other customers plan on installing Oxwall via Softaculous. We had a customer who was trying to install Oxwall and it wouldn’t go. After hours of troubleshooting, we were finally able to get it.

For some reason Softaculous didn’t set the permissions properly to a folder during the install. The template_c folder within the “ow_smarty” folder is supposed to be set to CHMOD 777, but it was set to something like 754, which is not correct.

If you plan on installing Oxwall and run into problems, please feel free to open a support ticket. We’d be more than happy to assist!

    I have oddly never heard of Oxwall before. Most of the time when Softaculous rolls something out I stay on top of it but I mussed have missed this. Is it similar to Joomla?

    No, Oxwall is a PHP based platform for social networking, and comes with a common core of features.

    Errors such as the permissions being incorrect can take a great deal of debugging, especially when you suspect something else to be the cause of your error
