I have never used the foxserver package before, so the information I'll provide may not be completely suitable.

To install the system you need to run the install.php script, which you have done successfully.

What you need to know is the url in your computer, which usually is
Code: Select all
http://localhost/installation_folder/ojs/
and would be the Base URL you would type in the field.

The files path is a physical path inside the hard drive (on Windows the slashes may cause problems, but foxserver may sovle this). On linux you would type something like:
Code: Select all
 /usr/local/apache/htdocs/installation_folder/files/

The files path should be outside of the ojs folder, to prevent external access to submission and working files.

The trailing slash is fundamental for the system to work correctly, or it will not create the links correctly and will not find anything...

After this you will need the MySQL user and password to create the database.

Later, you will create the first Editor, who could be a System Administrator, instead of the real General Editor, for example. Someone with full access to assist the Editorial Team and other users...

Hope this helps...
