Forum rules
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.

Ok,
My journal website is currently hosted on bluehost.
1) WHich folder should I be installing OJS in? The following folders are available: cpanel-datastore, entropybanner, fantasticodata, htmltemplates, htpsasswds, sqmaildata, trash, drafts, etc, mail, public_ftp, public_html, ssl, tmp.

2) I currently have the journal (http://www.herpconbio.org) files in the public_html folder on the hosting site. There will be a transition from the old pages to the new OJS set up. I would really like to set up the whole damn thing before replacing the old website. Will installing the OJS on our server interfere with the workings of the current journal webapges? I would really like to install OJS, experiment with it until it is the way we want it, then make the journal public.

3) Our address is currently http://www.herpconbio.org. When I install OJS, will typing http://www.herpconbio.org still send the reader to our journal?

4) Our journal is currently having difficulty getting picked up by Google Scholar. I noticed some, but not all of the journals on your list are in Google Scholar. Is this because somehow registering with the PKP allows it to be picked up by Google Scholar? I have been in constant contact with GS and they only pick of three of the 20+ articles we have published so far!

Thank you for your help!

public_html

1) install your ojs inside /public_html in a directory called ojs

2) in config.inc.php, set ojs base url like this:
base_url = "http://www.myhomepage.com/ojs"

3) let's make all the test and transitions you want in your ojs

when you'll be at the end:

a) copy che content of /public_html/ (without ojs dir!!!!)
in /public_html/oldjournal (and make a backup), then move the content of ojs dir up to one level (remember to change all static links you fixed during tests and configurations) and change base_url in: base_url = "http://www.myhomepage.com/"

OR, if you have access to server configuration and you do not use the server for other services:

b) change your web server root to /public_html/ojs

bye
