Multi-journal installation with unique domains

Postby pashton » Tue Jan 22, 2008 1:31 pm

Does anyone one know (or is anyone running) if it is it possible to have a multi-journal installation with unique domains. That is, have one ojs installation with multiple journals but each journal to be accessed through its own domain (possibly as well as through a single installation domain)?

Kind Regards

Hi Paul,

Yes, it's possible. You'll need to use mod_rewrite in Apache to allow incoming requests to be sent to OJS appropriately, and you can configure OJS to generate these URLs by configuring the base_url[index] entry in config.inc.php and one base_url[journalPathGoesHere] entry for each of your journals. This will be a little tricky -- mod_rewrite always is -- but entirely possible. There are a few threads in this forum discussing mod_rewrite.
