oxwall community installation software

http://docs.oxwall.org/install:manual_installation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_social_networking_software

 INSTALL.txt
UTF-8 Unicode English text
CONTENTS OF THIS FILE
====================

* Requirements
* Installation
* Additional Information

REQUIREMENTS
=============

Oxwall Requires:

- Apache WEB server, version 2.0 or higher. ( http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi )
- PHP 5.2.6 or higher. ( http://www.php.net/ )
- MySQL 5.0 or higher. ( http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ )
- Mail Server installed: SendMail, Exim or other. ( http://www.exim.org/mirrors.html )
- Cron ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron )

For more detailed information about Oxwall requirements, including the list of necessary PHP extensions and configurations, visit Oxwall Hosting page and see System Requirements. ( http://www.oxwall.org/hosting )


INSTALLATION
============

1. Download and Extract Oxwall;

The latest Oxwall release can be found at http://www.oxwall.org/download . The main package is available in zip format, which can be extracted using most compression tools.

 a. FTP Upload
 Extract Oxwall archive to a temporary directory and rename the unpacked folder to oxwall_x.y.z/;
 Upload contents of oxwall_x.y.z/ into your site’s public directory (typically public_html/) using an FTP client. Do not forget about .htaccess file.

 b. Shell Mode
 Enter following commands using a typical Unix/Linux command line to download and extract files:

      wget http://www.oxwall.org/dl/ow_x.y.z.zip
      unzip oxwall_x.y.z.zip

    This will create a new directory oxwall_x.y.z/ containing all Oxwall files and directories. Enter following command to move contents of this directory to your public HTML directory:

      mv oxwall_x.y.z/* oxwall_x.y.z/.htaccess /path/to/your/public_html/

2. Create Database;

Oxwall stores all site information in a MySQL database, which means you must create this database on your hosting and assign it a user with certain privileges, such as create/drop and modify tables.
Note the username, password, database name, and hostname given during the database creation, since you will need it during the installation.

If you encounter problems creating the database, please contact your hosting provider for support and specific instructions.

3. Run Installation;

Go to http://www.mysite.com/install to run the install script. Follow on-screen instructions to set up the database connection info, add additional plugins, create the site admin account, and provide basic website settings.

Most common steps required include:

 a. Write permissions
 The install script will attempt to write to these folders:

  ow_pluginfiles/
  ow_userfiles/
  ow_static/
  ow_smarty/template_c

 A notification will appear if this process fails. In this case set writable permissions recursively. For instance, go to folder with Oxwall and enter the following command for ow_pluginfiles/ directory:

  chmod -R 777 ow_pluginfiles/

or

 Use native tools of your FTP client to change permissions for selected folders.

 Repeat for other folders.

 b. Create config file
 During the installation you must manually replace contents of ow_includes/config.php file with the code provided by the installation guide.

4. Setup Cron Tasks;

Many Oxwall features include tasks that will be run periodically, such as updating profile's online status, processing memberships, mass mailing, importing data, etc. This is why it is strongly recommended to setup Oxwall Cron Tasks immediately after the main installation.

As an example of how to setup this automated process, you can use the Unix/Linux crontab utility. The following crontab line uses WGET command to execute the URL to cron file, and runs every minute (recommended):

* * * * * wget http://www.yoursite.com/ow_cron/run.php

Replace http://www.yoursite.com/ with your actual domain name.

DNSChanger malware Check-Up

Update 9th May 2012
Cloudflare now has an app which can automatically warn your site visiters of a problem with their dns .
https://www.cloudflare.com/apps/dnschanger_detector

https://forms.fbi.gov/check-to-see-if-your-computer-is-using-rogue-DNS

DNS Changer most often comes disguised as a video “codec” supposedly needed to view adult movies. It infects systems at the boot sector level, hooking into the host computer at a very low level and making it often very challenging to remove. This malware family didn’t just infect Microsoft Windows systems: Several versions of DNS changer would just as happily infect Mac systems as well. Other variants of the malware even hijacked DNS settings on wireless home routers. The FBI has posted several useful links to help users learn whether their systems are infected with DNS Changer.

Infected PCs may lose Internet in July


http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/story/2012-04-20/internet-woes-infected-pcs/54446044/1

Feike Hacquebord, senior threat researcher for security vendor Trend Micro, called the arrest the “biggest cybercriminal takedown in history.” In a blog post



The following links relate to this entry:
For more information, Rik Ferguson posted an entry on his CounterMeasures blog on ways to check if you’re a victim of the “Operation Ghost Click” criminal activity.

You can also test to see if you are affected by visiting the following DNSChanger Check-Up sites below. If this Check-Up site indicates that you are affected by DNSChanger, then visit http://www.dcwg.org/cleanup.html for information on how to address this problem.
