Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Where could I find the documents of the OJS? Thank you!

what documents are you referring to?

If it's the submission files, they are in a folder (should be outside of the ojs folder for security reasons!) in your server..

The system files are inside the ojs folder..

documents about the system itself, getting start

Postby newComer » Thu Mar 10, 2005 12:50 am

Thank you for kindly reply. I mean the documents of the system itself, like the structure of the system, and etc. Anyway, I have not been that far. For the moment I just put the system into web server and tried index.php lots of errors. Then I tried install.php, much better. but still errors prevent me from going ahead to config database. I just copy a few lines here:


Notice: Undefined index: journalLocale in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\testphp\ojs\install.php on line 90

Notice: Constant JOURNAL_TITLE already defined in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\testphp\ojs\locale\en\install.inc.php on line 89

Notice: Undefined variable: op in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\testphp\ojs\install.php on line 93

It seems you don't have your apache configured correctly.

Check your apache's configuration file (httpd.conf) and the php.ini configuration. It may be the output_buffer variable...not really sure without being there.

You're trying to install it on Windows I assume.. I've had problems with windows because of permission and addressing problems mostly.

If you try Xampp's triad you may find it easier to run things...

I don't know how to redirect the server to use another e-mail server, so the system works correctly.. You might want to look that up..

I've only used Unix to really test the system...but there are those who have managed to run it without problems on windows...

good luck....

As noted in other postings in this forum, use the default error_reporting level in your php.ini to avoid such notice messages.
