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.

When I try to install OJS 2.0 on my website http://www.iischs.com/ojs-2.0.1/index.p ... ll/install

it comes with an error message

Errors occurred during installation:

A database error has occurred: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)

Our webserver use MySQL version 4.0.23-standard . Even when I tried loading in Postgre SQL a blank screens come.

When I do manual installation and try loging in or visitng the site it says Database connection failed.

Please help

Please check if you have installed PHP with support to the database you want to use (it seems to be the case with PostGreSQL).

The access denied message means you do not know the password to connect to the MySQL database. Check your MySQL installation and configurations.
