How to install Oxwall Social Network

What is Oxwall how to install Oxwall CMS/Script on a VPSie (VPS Server)

Oxwall is a flexible, cross-platform software application that allows administrators to create customized social networks like Face, cooperation tools, fan sites, and other community-based projects.

Based on PHP and MySQL, Oxwall features multimedia sharing, blogs, forums, wikis, classes, events, friends, multiple languages, and also the ability to comment on almost everything and anything.

As it is open-source, Oxwall is free to use and is customizable.

If your business’s website relies on communicating at all, you’ll want to provide a good platform for that communication to happen.

Plenty of third-party programs do just that but are somewhat limiting in that you’re stuck with whatever attributes, design components, or functions that the developer created.

In contrast, the programmers of Oxwall adjusting its flexibility as one of its greatest strengths.

Oxwall enables you to create a Facebook-like social media network that includes:

User profile pages

Privacy controls for users

Groups

Private messaging and real-time chat

The screen of that users is online.

Posting, newsfeed, commenting, searching.

Task notifications

Emoji service

Online discussion forums based on topics

Event calendars and statements

User blogging

Committed picture feeds, and video feeds.

Facebook Connect login

Oxwall is a very good open-source social network CMS though we would say the best is OSSN Opensource-Socialnetwork.org. Try all the open-source social network-scripts/CMS’s and see which is best for your project/site needs.
