Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

OJS2.0 Installation problem

Postby Aneesh » Mon Jun 13, 2005 2:55 am

Hi all,

I tried to install OJS2.0 on a Fedora Core 3 System.
I get the first Installation form to fillin details

But when I click on 'Install Open Journal Systems' after filling in all the details
I get a blank screen.

I get the same blank screen even if I click on the 'Manual Installation'
The following is my system configuration

Server version: Apache/2.0.52
PHP 4.3.9
MySQL 3.23.58

Could you please help me solve this problem?

Are you sure that your PHP installation has MySQL support enabled? You can check with phpinfo().

Generally, on most Linux distributions you need to install an additional php-mysql or php4-mysql package to install MySQL client support in PHP.

Yes. You are correct. I didn't install php-mysql

After installing that package it works like a charm.
