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’m happy to announce that today WeHostFree is offering Softaculous on every single hosting plan; Free or Paid!
What is Softaculous? Softaculous is a wonderful option you can locate in your control panel. It allows you to install software onto your website with the click of a button! You no longer have to fear installing WordPress. Simply log into your control panel and click the icon.
Softaculous currently offers over 300 programs you can install on your website! Whether you’re looking for a shopping cart, forum, blog, etc. I’m sure you’ll be able to find it!
Before Softaculous, we were assisting users with their WordPress installations, so this should make things much easier for everyone. We still are offering WordPress support, so should you run into any problems we can offer support starting at $9.99.
To browse the catalog of software, log into your control panel, scroll all the way down to the bottom, and click the Softaculous icon.
