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.

OJS installed but it doesn't work

Postby hsandir » Sat Nov 10, 2007 1:20 pm


First, let me say I am a complete beginner in using OJS and MySQL, so forgive me if I ask a stupid question.

I installed OJS.

But now, when I try to launch OJS, I get a error message that "the server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complate your request". This error page's title is "500 Internal Server Error"

Can someone help me with some pointers about what I might have done wrong, and how I might fix it?

Hi hsandir,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2403 for the likely cause of this problem.
