What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Installation of OCS on Fedora Core4

Postby apsc » Wed Mar 08, 2006 12:30 am

I am currently installing both OJS and OCS onto my server. Having some hiccups here and there due to my unfamilarity on LINUX ground but slowly gettin the hang of it also starting to like the sys environment.

I have read Matthew's entry warning on Fedora Core 4's incapability to install OCS due to PHP 5.0

I am wondering if there is another way or anyway to get the program installed? Maybe patches are out or there are ways to route over the problem.

Also if OCS really clashes with FC4 any recommendations on other OS that do not support PHP 5.0 and yet capable of support OCS's installation?

Hi apsc,

We've got a user working on updating OCS so it'll run on PHP 5.x; unfortunately nothing is available at the moment. In the meantime, while I'm not personally familiar with FC4, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a set of packages available to allow you to run PHP 4.x on FC4.
