The Oxid weblink provided in the how to, does not work!

They moved things!

I found the download link, however the download does not complete, it stops at about 50%. Tried it three times, same result.

The download is extremely throttled to a minimum, or lets say the speed of a 33 Kbaud modem.

I think it is unacceptable, even if for free or trial.

Will not consider this software!

So if you're on your way to the BMW dealership and traffic is slow, is a BMW no longer considered worthwhile?

Anyways, I've downloaded this software several times (over several years) and have never had 'throttling' issues.  Maybe your interweb was having a bad day.  Also, there is more than one way to skin a cat.  Had you tried an alternative, you may of found (among others):

I've been testing out the vhosts configuration file suggested here, using it as somewhat of a learning platform for NGINX and have found some important things to note:

  •  Foremost, it is not secure.  As is, anybody will be able to download raw php files from the applicable site.
  • The handling of oxseo.php is not complete.  Query arguments are dropped which will lead to some pages not rendering correctly.


I am no NGINX expert, and maybe I was missing something when testing.  But from what I've read about NGINX so far, the above issues make sense relative to the configuration.
