3. The Install Process

There are a number of components to a successful OJS install: downloading and unpacking the OJS application files in a web accessible directory on your server; creating a separate files/ directory that is not web accessible; and most likely, manually creating a database user and database.


All servers are different, and the installation process in your case may be different than what follows. If any of this confuses you or for some reason does not work, be sure to check the documentation that comes with OJS in the docs/ folder, as well as the support forum and FAQ. But also be sure to read your service provider and server documentation as well.
