Detailed w-script installation instructions

Hav­ing prob­lems installing w-script? Read this.

!!Some parts here is from per­sonal expe­ri­ence only and may be wrong due to the lack of proper doc­u­men­ta­tion, if you know bet­ter please comment

First of all, down­load lat­est w-script ver­sion, there should be large green but­ton some­where in this page.

Unzip the package.

Fire up your favorite FTP client, if you don’t have one, I’d sug­gest using FileZilla, install and usage instruc­tions are on their site.
Upload all the files from folder wscript to your host.
The uplouad takes a few min­utes, so mean­while go to your host’s CPanel (usu­ally yourdomain.com/cpanel) Find the sec­tion Data­bases there and click on MySQL® Data­base wizard.

In the next win­dow enter the data­base name, in this exam­ple it will be “walls” click next.
There you enter data­base user name and pass­word, I usu­ally use the same name I used for the data­base, so user name is “walls” too. enter pass­word twice, click “Crate user”.
In next win­dow you will see this text:

Added user “hellkern_walls” with pass­word “Your­Pass­word”.
Step 3: Add User to the Data­base
User: hellkern_walls
Data­base: hellkern_walls

(instead of “hel­lk­ern” there will be your data­base prefix)

Now !!Impor­tant select “All Priv­i­leges” and click next.

There is text:

Step 4: Com­plete the task
User hellkern_walls was added to the data­base hellkern_walls.

Go back to your FTP client, the file trans­fer should be fin­ished now, if not wait for a bit.
Make sure you chmod all the nec­es­sary files cor­rectly. Use this tuto­r­ial.

Go to yourwebsite.com and the instal­la­tion screen should appear.

Field name / What to enter there
Host­name / leave it al “local­host” , if it does not work use “ftp.yourwebsite.com” or other link, if your host­ing pro­vided one.
Data­base name / Your DB name, in this exam­ple “hellkern_walls“
Data­base User / Your DB user, in this exam­ple “hellkern_walls“
Data­base Pass­word / DB pass­word, in this exam­ple “Your­Pass­word“
Data­base Pre­fix / DB pre­fix, in this exam­ple “hellkern_”

Admin Pser­name / Your user name
Admin Pass­word / Your Pass­word. Use at least 8–9 char­ac­ters, may cause errors if too short (not tested)
Admin Email / Your email
Site Name / Your site name, keep it short, 3–4 words is enough, may cause errors if too long (not tested)
Site Slo­gan / Your site slo­gan, keep it short, 5–6 words is enough, may cause errors if too long (not tested)
(Will add screen­shot with prop­erly filled install form later)

And this is a screen­shot of  form with some mistakes:


Try to guess how many are there :D

Press “Per­form instal­la­tion” if every­thing is ok, you should get text like “delete instal­la­tion folder to con­tinue”, if not make sure you did all the steps exactly as writ­ten here. If thete is still error please post a screen­shot of it in the Sup­port Forum.
Delete folder “install” from your host.

(Optional, use only if you wan’t usee SEO friendly url’s and rank bet­ter in search engines)
Once instal­la­tion is fin­ished log in to your web­site, go to Manage->Site Set­tings
In there go to Set­tings tab, cose to the bot­tom there are a set­ting “Enable mod_rewrite”. Choose yes and click save.
Now this will prob­a­bly mess up the whole site, but don’t worry, here is a fix: go to your FTP client and delete file .htac­cess (You might need to enable “Show Hid­den Files” set­ing in your FTP client to see it)
Open the folder “wscript” you downloaded/unzipped ear­lier, take file _htaccess, copy it to your host and rename as .htac­cess there. !!Impor­tant Make sure the new .htac­cess is CHmod­ded as 644, or you might just get hacked..

I hope this helped, if you have any sug­ges­tions or ques­tions please com­ment.

Please inform me as to how do I mod­ify the header of the default template.

  13. Hello. it is honor for me to install ur excel­lent script upon my domain.i just have small prob­lem.
    if u looked at my page u will find that is noth­ing appears in the bot­tom block most rated..how can i fix it please.

    • dragonx says:

      set the Min­i­mum wall­pa­per votes for top10 to 1 and rate any wall­pa­per, and it will appear straight away. The default set­ting is 5 or 6 i think, that’s why it doesn’t show any most rated until your wall­pa­per gets the amount of votes.

    Instruc­tions for installing are OK but after CHMOD­ding the files and fold­ers you don’t men­tion which ones to put back to 644 or 755 for exam­ple. I don’t know for sure but leav­ing settings.php with the CHMOD of 777 sounds risky. If you change it how­ever, does it stop you from chang­ing set­tings later?

    You need to add instruc­tions for other areas too.

    No where do I see instruc­tions for bulk upload­ing. The only men­tion of bulk upload­ing is in the fea­tures of w-script but it men­tions a zip file which does not work.

    The CHMOD instruc­tions you refer to in some places are obvi­ously for the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of w-script as some of the fold­ers you men­tion in the list do not exist.

    I will be mak­ing instruc­tions for these areas plus oth­ers soon as I can see many oth­ers hav­ing prob­lems with just the sim­ple stuff.

  24. Hi,

    I’m try­ing to install the script, but I’m hav­ing the fol­low­ing problem:


  25. My php ver­sion is 5.3.3

  26. sha says:

    i think you are not installed script com­pletely. and some errors come from host­ing com­pany also.

  27. nnmanh says:

    always get “Set­tings not saved. Please check your fields for errors and also that you applied the right per­mis­sions to all required files and folders.”

  28. user says:

    same error as above.
    all files checked and chmod is set right.
    all require­ments are right.
    and what i saw till now the sup­port is very bad!!
    I know it is a free script but you are still respon­si­ble for all this errors.

  29. Fabio says:

    Hi, thanks for shar­ing this awe­some script!!! Just a ques­tion, it’s pos­si­ble to cat­e­go­rize wall­pa­pers based on res­o­lu­tion? For exam­ple there will be a cat­e­gory for all 1600x1200 wall­pa­pers, another for all 1680x1050 and so on… can be pos­si­bile in this release or maybe in a future one?

  30. i will try it bro
    thanks for it :D

  31. MK says:

    I just wanted to say that W-Script is so far the best free wall­pa­per script I have ever found. The inter­face, the options, the customization…I really can’t believe this is free, it’s amaz­ing :) Keep up the great work and I hope you keep it free :P

  32. mjprebelo says:

    how can i acess the admin­is­tra­tion page of the installation?

  33. James says:

    First of all HUGE thank you for pro­vid­ing us the script!
    The rea­son I’m com­ment­ing is I have a prob­lem with man­ag­ing my site. When I log into my admin­is­tra­tor account I made while installing the script there is no Man­age but­ton as I’ve seen in tuto­ri­als there should be. Any­one else had this prob­lem? And how do I fix this?
