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

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.

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Help with installation

Hi PKP team,

I've just extracted the OJS into my XP Desktop and uploaded via FTP on my server (STRATO). I am trying to see the install screen but the syntax error below hat occurred:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=', expecting ')' in /mnt/web4/d1/02/51715402/htdocs/css2/ojs2/plugins/generic/backup/BackupPlugin.inc.php on line 169

I've checked the Forum and can't find anything relating to this. Any idea?

thanks in advance

Hi Giovanni,

There's a patch at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8475 that will correct this; it's a mistake in the code that only certain versions of PHP will complain loudly about.
