2. Ensure mainfile.php, cache, templates_c and uploads are writable by the webserver

Upgrading from a previous version

Upgrading from XOOPS (easy way)

2. Delete htdocs/mainfile.php, htdocs/install/, htdocs/cache/, htdocs/extras/, htdocs/template_c/, htdocs/themes/ and htdocs/uploads/
3. Upload the content of the htdocs folder over your existing files

Files integrity check

The full XOOPS package is released with a script able to check if all the system files were correctly uploaded to the server. To use it, follow these instructions:

1. Upload the checksum.php and checksum.md5 files located in the XOOPS package root to your XOOPS server folder (putting them next to mainfile.php).
2. Execute checksum.php with your browser
3. If necessary, re-upload the missing or corrupted system files
4. Remove checksum.php and checksum.md5 from your server

Incompatibility with some modules

Beginning with XOOPS 2.0.14, a change in the core template methods resulted in some incompatibilities with some modules that do not have their templates under (dirname)/templates/ as many XOOPS modules do. Please read extras/readme.txt for workaround instructions.


The packages do not contain any module apart from the system one. You are invited to browse the XOOPS modules repository to get some. Note: as a new repository is being built, the current repository is not up-to-date, PLEASE VISIT DEVELOPERS' WEBSITES TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING PROPER VERSION OF MODULES.

We also highly recommend the installation of the Protector module which will bring additional protection and logging capabilities to your site.

We have set up a XOOP Torrent Section, I think we should have one here for themes and so on, it is a great distribution of media to all in the world around us.

For Example:,0,0,0,dateD,0,0,0,dateD,0,0,0,dateD,0,0,0,dateD,0,0,0,dateD,0,0,0,dateD

Will all display the XOOPS Core Releases.

If you are on a slow modem as I know even my college mates here in australia some still are, you can download XOOPS by clicking below.
