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
One additional note:
I also have PHP 5.0.4
I don't know what happened to the replies that were posted here, but I got this working on Windows XP. Thanks to the user that told me about switching to PHP4 from PHP5 and also to Kevin for the info on making sure mySQL was accessible from the PHP module. I also had to switch to mySQL4.0 from mySQL4.1
[There was an issue that required reloading the database from a previous backup, so a day or so worth of posts were lost.]
Regarding the comment about PHP 5, there are no known incompatibilities between OJS and PHP 5. If you do see any issues, please report

The index.php sees that it needs to install, but only shows a blank page. Confirmed that all servers are running. Can you let me know the staps to install.
Usually a apt-get with the name of the module should do it. Or you can use the graphical interface, installing the support for mysql in the Server settings.

See docs/FAQ for information on this, but in general:
- If you're getting a blank page when you first try to access the OJS installation:
- The problem is most likely a PATH_INFO issue. Search the forums for PATH_INFO for more information.
- Otherwise, it's potentially a PHP out-of-memory issue; increase the limit (12M seems to work well) in your php.ini configuration file, restart Apache, and try again.
- If you're getting a blank page once you've filled in the installation form (i.e. with database connection information etc.):
- Your PHP installation is probably missing the module for your database. For MySQL, the module is usually called mysql.so. See your php.ini configuration file.
