Documentation: The OJS Technical Reference and the OJS API Reference are both available from the OJS Documentation page. 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.

Git: You can access our public Git Repository here. Comprehensive Git usage instructions are available on the wiki.

Bugzilla: You can access our Bugzilla report tracker here.

Search: You can use our Google Custom Search to search across our main website, the support forum, and Bugzilla.

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.

Using CVS version of code

Postby spatialguru » Tue Jul 31, 2007 1:38 pm

Earlier I tested OCS using a v2 tarball, but now I'm trying from CVS but not having much luck getting the install to complete. Is there anything I need to know when trying to install the CVS version.

I can get to the install page, but never beyond it (I only get a blank response with no html source) and apparently no httpd error log entry either. I also tried using tools/install.php and it instantly completed without any errors, yet no db tables have been created.

Any tips?

I should mention that I've installed: http://lib-pkp.lib.sfu.ca/ocs/download/ ... 0-1.tar.gz without any trouble on the same machine.

Hi spatialguru,

Looks like the installer was broken by some plugin changes; it should be fixed.

Sure thing - an updated version is working fine now.

What's the best way to get a changelog of recent improvements in CVS?

Hi spatialguru,

The best thing to do is search Bugzilla (http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla) for entries that are marked as completed against the next release (for OCS, use 2.0.1). Most of the work since 2.0 was released has been back-ports from OJS, which are listed in bug #2883.
