I use a free host, which might be my only problem, but how do you install OSQA? I have been to the websites, and I still can't figure it out. I've installed WordPress and Joomla on my host so I have some experience, but I guess those don't count because they are ridiculously easy.

I just launched a free OSQA.net hosting service. It's in a very beta stage, but you can go check it and start using it http://ianswer.me/

Nice! I like it. Thanks for sharing.

OSQA uses Django (a web framework written in Python) rather than PHP. I seriously doubt your free web host provides hosting for Python-based applications (I've yet to hear of one, actually). Either host it on a computer at your home (just to try it out, even) or start paying for hosting (it's not exactly expensive, my company offers hosting for $10 a year).

Once you have a setup capable of hosting Django applications, just follow OSQA's installation instructions.

$10 a year? Nice.

Maybe they mean a month. I don't know of any web-hosts that have $10 a year. If there are I would love to know.

$10 a year is amazing.

Looks like you need python and SQL installed.

To be honest, i'd probably do a dry run on Linux ubuntu using Apache if you can't get it to work on your free host.


These guides provide a starting point for Linux/Vista
