Hosting for OJS

Postby ionas » Mon May 23, 2011 5:41 am


I am thinking to start a new journal using OJS but I'm not sure what resources are required to run this system. What are the RAM and CPU requirements for this system? Would a shared hosting account supporting php and mysql be sufficient or would I need to have a virtual private server account? I assume this depends on the number of users accessing the service and the number of articles on the database but for a starting journal, which won't have an excessive amount of traffic, would a simple hosting account be sufficient?

Thanks! :)

Thanks but i'm not interested in such services. What i'm asking is whether a simple hosting account or a vps is required.

Hi ionas,

I know of a number of journals using a simple shared hosting account to run OJS. At a minimum though, you should check that the service meets OJS' system requirements (listed on the download page), and also allows SSH access (not strictly mandatory, but it really helps).
