Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: How to install xowiki on oacs5.2.4 platform?
David is right that the two current xotcl-core and xowiki versions (in the oacs-5-3 and in head) are not compatible with oacs 5.2.* due to changes between oacs-5-2 and oacs-5-3. I don't have the time working on this in the near future. If you have big interest, there are companies willing and capable to do this for e.g. the version in the 5.3 branch with little effort (send me email if you are interested).
It is possible to install old versions of xotcl-core and xowiki on 5.2, either from cvs or - as nima points out - from the download area on media. The apm files in the download area of media above are very old. If you have cvs access, i have heard that using the version form march works well with oacs-5-2

hope that helps
