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.

Installation Problem

Postby mattdp » Fri Jun 15, 2007 6:04 am


Just unpacked OJS on a system running Fedora 6 and XAMPP.

On first attempt to run the installation page I get a memory error, which I track down on this forum and fix.

On second attempt I get this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /opt/lampp/htdocs/ojs/index.php on line 18
I've tried turning off live errors and turning on error logging and then all I get is a blank screen. Any ideas?

Hi Matt,

Double-check your modification; I suspect it's causing the error message. I'd also suggest disabling Zend Optimizer in your php.ini file, as certain versions are buggy and cause memory errors with OJS. (The most recent release, 3.2.6, apparently works fine.)
