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.

OJS2 Installation problem

I tried to install OJS v2 with Postgresql and I get:

A database error has occurred: ERROR: parser: parse error at or near "TEMPLATE"

Any ideas?

Postgresql 7.2.1

It appears that the "CREATE DATABASE dbname TEMPLATE template" syntax may only be supported in PostgreSQL 7.3 or later.

You may need to create the database manually before running the OJS installer.
