Do you want to install Open Monograph Press on your server? Installing this program will allow you to host a press for you and your colleagues. Open Monograph Press can be used on a web server that is serving other functions, and requires very little in the way of system requirements.

System Requirements

To run the latest release of OMP, your web server will need:

  • PHP 7.3 or later with MySQL or MariaDB or PostgreSQL support
  • A database server: MySQL/MariaDB 4.1.1 or later OR PostgreSQL 9.5 or later
  • UNIX-like OS recommended (such as Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Mac OS X, etc.). OMP Has not been broadly tested outside of Apache or lighttpd environments, but is expected to work with other web servers.

If you do not understand these system requirements, consult your department’s technical administrator. If you are looking for OMP hosting support, PKP Publishing Services offers a full range of hosting and consultation services.
