To install OJS: installation instructions

Postby rke4me » Sat Jul 14, 2007 5:38 am

I am new and not familiar with LINUX. I am handling my linux server throuh CPANEL.

I want to install OJS on my server. Is there any installation instructions to help me?

However, I am trying to visit your (at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/README) on-screen installation instructions at <http://yourdomain.com/path/to/ojs/>.
But there is a following massage given only

" This domain has been blocked "

Can you suggest me any installation instructions for OJS

Hi rke4me,

The http://yourdomain.com/path/to/ojs/ in the instructions is just a sample; you need to point the browser at your own web page and the path to the index.php script you've just unpacked from the OJS installation archive.

You need to install Apache and MySql

Download a Lampp package for linux from apachefriends.org to have an all in one installation or install them from you linux repositories

Hi rke4me,

It all depends on what directory you've installed OJS in. If you've installed it in the webroot of your server (e.g. htdocs or public_html on most servers), you can just go directly to your domain and you'll see the OJS installation page. Unfortunately, we can't give more specific instructions than that, because every server is different.

If you already have Apache and MySQL installed, there's no need to get the LAMP package.
