OJS Installation in shared hosting

Postby bkghosh » Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:43 am


Is it possible to install OJS in shared hosting scenario?? Where we can only use FTP and database connectivity through the control panel. Server is fulfilling all the minimum requirements. But we are not getting VPN remote access/SSH remote access/Remote desktop because of shared hosting service.

So is it mandatory to have a VPS server/Dedicated server to install the OJS (Because we are not getting VPN remote access/SSH remote access/Remote desktop) ???

Please suggest me for the same.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi bkghosh,

No, VPN access is not required; FTP and database connectivity should be enough. See docs/README for installation instructions.
