While these are OJS-specific, the OCS codebase is similar enough to OJS they should be of help. There is also an [url=http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation[/url]OCS Documentation[/url] page with some more general documentation that might also be of interest.

Questions and discussion are welcome, but if you have a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a technical support question, try the OCS Technical Support subforum.

Hi Shadab,

Try turning on the "debug" option in your config.inc.php -- but OTOH, I suspect an XML file was missed when you FTP'd the software up to your host.

Hi Shadab,

The best resources is probably the "OCS In An Hour" document; see http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation. There's also context-sensitive online help; click the "Help" button anywhere in OCS to see that.
