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.
