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.

same article problem

Postby todd » Tue Sep 13, 2005 7:53 am

I get this same thing happening...it seems to be a path problem. Which I haven't quite yet figured out how to fix. Can anyone offer suggestions?

See "http://ca3.php.net/features.safe-mode#ini.open-basedir".

You'll have to either relax the open_basedir directive in php.ini to allow the web server to access files in /home/pimatisiwin, or you'll have to change your OJS files directory to something that's a subdirectory of your open_basedir setting.

Resolving error messages

Postby todds buddy » Tue Sep 13, 2005 7:52 pm

The problem was resolved by adding the following to the config.inc.php file...

files_dir = /home/.nebbu/pimatisiwin/ojs_files/

...and then it seemed to work.

open_basedir problem

Postby gmbowen » Wed Feb 01, 2006 12:36 pm

Mine was solved the opposite way.

I did have

files_dir = /home/e-smith/files/ibays/Primary/html/ojs2/files

but that didn't work. When we made the paths completely relative

files_dir = files

then everything was fine. This bit took a lot of fiddling about (moreso than other scripts from other programs which were doing directory & file creation).

Hi gmbowen,

Glad to hear it's working; keep in mind, however, that you're potentially making your submission documents available directly on the web. For example, if your OJS url is http://www.myjournal.com/ojs2/index.php and your files path is "files", you might be able to browse submission files directly at http://www.myjournal.com/ojs2/files. You can use htaccess restrictions to prevent this.
