Part III. System Administration

The following instructions will demonstrate how to install OJS; how to make backups and restore from them; and how to upgrade to a new version of OJS. These instructions apply to typical Linux/Unix environments but will be substantially similar for Windows. The system requirements listed below must be met before beginning the installation process.

If you have any issues with these processes, you should take a look at the detailed install instructions found in docs/INSTALL in the OJS installation package. You may also want to take a look at the online FAQ, and then follow up on the support forum.

Instructions and how-to's involving different environments may be found on the support forum or on the development wiki.
